- You can instantly get a report of all CAD files in the model. Not just DWGs but also DXFs, DGNs, SKPs or SATs. Each file will show if it is linked or imported as well as view-specific or not. A Show button allows opening a view in which the CAD file is visible and selected, ready to be removed if necessary.
- You can see any view-specific CAD file’s parent view & its visibility in that view. You can now safely delete a view-specific DWG not currently visible anywhere!
- You can finally purge linked or imported CAD files by type! A second report will show all CAD file types in the model, each with its number of instances. A Delete buttons helps instantly remove obsolete types along with all of its copies!
