I would like advice on the best way to tidy up a drawing imported from elsewhere.
When you import a drawing in DWG format, for example, it often has layers you don’t want. Or in the process of tidying the drawing, you delete things and leave a layer blank but still in the list.
You can use extensions like Cleanup to get rid of redundant items but I often find that I am left with layers that apparently have things still on them that aren’t immediately visible. If you try to delete the layer, SU rightly gives you the option to delete and lose contents or to transfer them somewhere else. But what to do when you don’t know what they are or if they are important?
I am sure experienced users will have a workflow for this kind of thing that ensures they neither keep anything unimportant nor lose anything important. All advice gratefully received.
Here’s an example with Hidden Lines and Hidden Objects on and Zoom to Extents. None of the tags labelled Scale can be deleted as they report contents. Yet nothing is visible on screen.
