    Default Removing Duplicate Objects

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hey All,

    I am currently working on a stadium seating floor plan. Just updating things and checking for accuracy. But I have just found that a majority of the seat objects and associated number text on the seat are duplicated. ie if you move one there is another one underneath. So I guess my first question is, would this have any effect on the 'performance' of the drawing. There is 6000 odd seats. So is it processing each seat and number text twice? If it is going to have an adverse effect on performance and is worth cleaning up, is there an easy way to select a whole heap of duplicates, or only the object on top, or something like that? At the moment I have broken it into banks of seating and I am going though and selecting each seat, to only get the one on top, then deleting them. Not very efficient, so I ended up here Any help appreciated
