so, I am not the only one anal retentive about my data base.
make sure you purge more than once. you have to purge the block
containing the offending Dimstyle before a sucessive purge will clear
the stuff in the block. if the block was nested, you may have several
if it still won't go away I would use SSX and look for any entities in
the named Dimstyle. could be any number of reasons why you could still
have an entity in that style you couldn't see.
are we having fun yet?
one more thing. sometimes I have a viewport that had something turned
off in it, and I could not purge things referenced in the viewport.
don't know if a Dimstyle COULD be referenced in a viewport, but I am
still running R2000 out of the box. you may have more "choices".
SSX is an old express tool. I don't know your acad version, mine is
still 2000. have not used it in a while. just tried it and it does not
sort by dimension style anyway.
how about this:
make sure you are not set to the dimension style you want to get rid of
and type dimstyle on the command line. I think you will see the
Dimension Style Manager dialog. Highlight the offensive style and right
click. I get the opportunity to delete it then if there are no entities
using the defined style.
you know, she won't purge as long as it is the current style. that's
something I had not thought of.
failing that, when there is something amiss in my file and I can't find
it sometimes I wblock out the entire drawing. if an entity can't be
selected in a crossing box it does not get written to the new file.
sometimes it helps.
alternatively, here is a link to some shareware that might help.
hope you get it purged. let me know how if you do. if nothing else, it
seems like it should be just a couple of lines of code. just some lisp
commands I am really not too familiar with.
