    Kudos to irneb of Johannesburg for the slick data link removal lsp. This problem had been showing up in several of our company's drawings over the last few years and we could not get rid of those links until now. Many thanks!

    You can the app for AutoCAD 2013,2014 and 2015

    Irneb,

    How do I run the .dcl and the .lsp files you loaded in this thread?

    Go to - http://caddons.svn.sourceforge.net/v...sp?revision=67

    Copy and paste the entire text into Notepad.
    Saveas DictEdit.lsp to a folder on your acad support path but set "Save as type:" to "All files (*.*) and ignore the alert message about Unicode characters - save as ANSI anyway.
    Appload the file and run with it.

    Sorry, was way for a bit. As jaberwok's answered is the best way to get the current latest version of that file (it includes the LSP and the DCL in one file).

    For any possible future changes it might be preferable to use this link instead: http://caddons.svn.sourceforge.net/v...t.lsp?view=log
    It would show all revisions to that particular file, and from that you can choose the latest (or any previous revision). Though (as I've stated in a previous post) I seldom work in ACad any more, so don't have much use for these LSP routines (I'm now much more involved in writing C#/Python/Dynamo stuff for Revit). That's not to say any of them may not be changed in the future, I'm not the only person adding stuff in the Caddons project.

    ACAC 2014 I have noticed that DATALINKS which are no longer being used can be deleted through the datalink manager. Type datalink in the command line or use the pulldown menus (Tools\Data Links\Data Link Manager). You will see all of the DATALINKS in the window. Select, then right click and choose delete. This is also a useful tool if the DATALINK name needs to be changed. My question today is, "why will some DATALINKS allow me to use the relative path and another DATALINK in the same drawing will not?" Any suggestons?
