    Question Drawing Cleanup - Locating, Purging or Converting Unwanted Text Styles, Blocks, etc

    I want to know if there is a quick way or a command that can list the locations where a particular "junk" text style or block is being used to be able to go to it/zoom to it and edit it or remove it.

    Fonts are the main issue, but so are junk blocks hidden in blocks. Such as ones hidden within blocks, so that I can convert them to a standard font or get rid of the style definition. Problem is bizarre non-standard styles or styles with unrecognizable names that have "contaminated" some drawing files from things like other drawing block inserts.

    The Purge command cannot purge them out because they are apparently in use somewhere, presumable hiding in one of the many block definitions.
    Quick Select button/command cannot select items that are nested within other items.

    For Fonts that can't be purged, you can use the Standards tools to remap the odd-ball ones to a normal text style from you standards dws

    If you can spare US$30, pick up a copy of SuperPurge - it will purge anything, and if needed remove whatever is referencing the item you want to purge.
