I’m always uncomfortable purging unused components without knowing exactly what is being flushed. My fear is that I may have accidentally deleted something from my model, or I may simply change my mind and want it back and won’t remember where I got it or how I may have modified it. Recently, I started using a special tag “Unused saved components”. This not only prevents them being purged, but it also keeps them exactly as I used them in their intended placement. This also allows me to easily go through these tagged components and purge manually if desired. However, since my model predates this tagging method, I may have components I want to keep that were never tagged. I’m way overdue for some housecleaning, so my questions are:
- Is my tagging system silly? Am I missing a more logical method of managing unused components I want to keep handy? After all, I’m the kind of guy who is nervous about emptying my computer’s trash and have all my emails back to 2009!
- Is there anyway to identify or highlight unused components in the browser before purging?
- Is it possible to select unused components and save them to a file before purging?
- Is there a way to get larger component thumbnails (I’m getting old and I’m working on a laptop).
Thanks in advance!
