    Purging unused Patterns

    Is there any way to (easily) purge unused Fill Patterns?

    They don't seem to show up in the purge unused command.

    Nope. The only way to do this is by hand... sorry!

      But there is no effective way to determine whether or not the pattern is in use, referenced by a material or filled region, and Revit blithely deletes it anyway without warning.

        Thats completely true. Also, there are 5 or 6 "hardcoded" patterns that exist in families. Sure, you can delete all of them (except Solid Fill), but then if you use Edit Family to open the family.... They are back. Its completely irritating. Ive painstakingly gone through every family in our library, and all of the family templates, and deleted all of them, and we still end up with a bunch from random sources.

          Is this the same with the "default" materials? I keep trying to get rid of them, along with Poche, but they just keep coming back.

            The free HatchKit Add-In for Revit allows one-click deletion of unused fill patterns following confirmation.

            Fills in use within the current project are highlighted.

            The HatchKit Add-In can be obtained from Autodesk's Revit Exchange.
