    Default Delete duplicate entities

    We received a file from a client and it appears each entity has an identical duplicate... same x,y,z,/layer/color... We could eliminate the duplicates by erasing all via crossing then removing each entity one-by-one selection process - but that might kill my drafter.
    Any ideas on how to remove duplicate entities would be greatly appreciated.

    If they are lines, arcs, and circles; use the OVERKILL command. Just make sure PEDITACCEPT is set to 0.

    If it's blocks and such, then you're probably stuck doing it one by one.
    Why is it called common sense when it is so rare?

    overkill @ command line (if express tools is loaded)

    I was looking @ active users and thought I would be too late.
