Elsa posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi, When I open a new template all the correct linetypes are there and the drawing works fine, I can purge and they are deleted if not in use. When I copy ANYTHING from one of my existing drawings which contains all these odd linetypes then they all appear in the new drawings and they will not purge. ANYTHING = Text, blocks, lines... etc. From reading about similar problems I think it has risesn from Binding/Inserting (I cant remember which one I used) of a Xref orignially from Microstation into a drawing I did about 3 months ago. The linetypes have just stuck around. Any suggestions on how to remove them? I have added a screen shot, hopefully it worked. Thank you!
I have used AutoCAD for ten years but I'm struggling to understand the difference between Bind and Insert I thought one option brought in all the layers of the Xref and preceded the layer name with $ codes, etc. so you could differentiate between what is on the live drawing and what was brought in from the Xref. And the other option combined all elements on the Xref's layer into the layer of the live drawing - so avoiding the repeated layers of above. Does that make sense?
