purge DGN dictionary ans reduce bloated file size

in this thread from 2016 (Link below) , there seem to be a solution to the problem by running a code line in the command line....
for a reason i can't understand it doesn't work for me :-( , as thousands of references of certain blocks still appear on the list of blocks in the file (even though not appearing in the model itself....

pasting the suggested code line - **[code](dictremove (namedobjdict) "ACAD_DGNLINESTYLECOMP")[/code] ** - in the command line, the operation doesn't go beyond the first space in the line ........

We are using Bricscad V15 and V18.

Can anybody help ?

  • The code should be entered without the old code tags:
    (dictremove (namedobjdict) "ACAD_DGNLINESTYLECOMP")
    If the blocks are related to the linestyles you may be able to purge them after running the code. But you may also be dealing with nested blocks.
