Hey guys,

I have one of the files that you guys converted for me and it has quite a few layer with these layers:


The problem is that I use 'YE' - layer erase to erase everything on these layers. There is nothing on them, and it wont allow me to delete, purge or anything...How can I get rid of them?

There are probably AEC blocks still on the layer in paperspace.

Try this to see
(ssget "x" '((8 . "aeccobjexplode")))

If it returns NIL, then look to see if a block is inserted in the drawing called ACAD_ZZ or something like that. It will likely be in a paperspace layout and has no visible attributes.

You can check for it this way:

(ssget "x" '((2 . "acad_zz")))

It may return nil, or 1 found, not in current space. You might need to remove it to be able to purge the layer.
