Proxy Objects Keep Replicating After Nuking or Cleaning


You've cleaned a drawing by running our Nuke tool, and you're noticing that Proxy Objects are continuing to replicate themselves and corrupting the drawing.




Proxy Objects can be quite tenacious. Even when you run our powerful Nuke tool, a few can sometimes hang on.





Step 1: Remove the Proxy Objects


Type QSelect in the command line, and press Enter.



In the Quick Select dialog box, select the Proxy Object option from the Object Type menu.




Click OK.


Quick Select Dialog Box



All Proxy Objects in your drawing will be selected.



Type E (for Erase) in the Command line, and press Enter. The Proxy Objects will be removed.



Step 2: Prevent Proxy Objects from Corrupting Future Drawings
