    Default Paste Special from Word

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi,

    I pasted some text from a word document into model space and have since deleted it. There seems to be some parts of the text still in the drg, there are some white blocks appearing when zoomed out that I cant pick, and they vanish when I zoom in, I have tried purging to no avail, is there a way of removing?

    Any one of these three things should work.

    Make sure purge is set to delete zero length geometry and empty text items.

    WBlock the entire drawing.

    Turn on and thaw all layers. Select all (Ctrl+A). Deselect everything using a crossing window over the entire drawing, then delete what cannot be deselected.
    Drafting is a breeze.

    Hi

    Also try turning on QTEXT. This makes it easy to spot spaces, blank lines etc.

    This from help:

    When QTEXT (Quick Text) is turned on, each text and attribute object is displayed as a bounding box around the text object. Turning QTEXT mode on reduces the time it takes to regenerate drawings that contain many text objects. Use the REGEN command to display the results of QTEXT on existing text.
    Drafting is a breeze.

    A belated response as I have been on holiday; that has indeed sorted the issue, thanks for the help.
