Deleting Objects Outside Window

Postby rwhatman » Tue Jan 21, 2003 8:25 am

I have a Drawing that you can't zoom extents. If you do the drawing is no longer shown on screen. Also the cursor will not show up on the screen in the drawing area.

I think there may be a object drawn soom where out there.
I know its not a point number.
Someone may have messed up the usc or world view.

I have run out of ideas.

Zoomp

Try running the ZOOMP command and give it a point somewhere in the middle of your job. Give a height of say 100. Then use the ZOOM Minus command to zoom out slowly, until you can see the entire drawing on screen.Make sure all layers are on/thawed/unlocked - then CAREFULLY run the Erase (or Delete) command -> select ALL -> Remove Window (this should grab the entire drawing then remove the valid items from the selection set so you can erase anything bad).

Then try the ZOOM Extents to see if it works.

Yes that worked. There was 108 objects that needed deleting.

I don't know what I deleted, but know the drawing is ok.

Was there a way to zoom to objects before you delete them.
In this case I didn't care.

ZOOMP

There is no way to zoom to the specific items in the drawing to see what they are before erasing them. Another way around this might be to write a part out to a file of the good stuff - then see what is left. This may or may not work depending upon where everything is located in the drawing.
