    Where can i manage my loaded components, created walls in RAC11

    I have way too many walls in my project, when i open tab there is unused walls ~80% , where can i delete them, because it was loaded with project template. Many things i do not use, and i would like to delete them to find faster my preferred wall.

    Project browser. Families. Walls.

    There you will find your categories for walls (i.e. Basic, Stacked, Curtain). Open them up, select the ones you don't want. (Hint: use the CTRL key to select multiple walls). right click, delete.

    I'd start with the stacked walls since those will contain some of the basic walls. If the stacked wall is existing, it won't let you delete the basic walls that make it up.

      Purge unused might be a little faster (Need to do it twice probably, and make sure to only check "Walls")

            never mind thanks guys!
            Click Manage tabSettings panel (Purge Unused).
            The Purge unused dialog lists all the families and family types that you can unload from the project, including system and in-place families. By default, all unused families are selected for purging.
            ImportantIf the project is workset-enabled, all worksets must be open to use this tool.
            Do either of the following:
            To purge all unused family types, click OK.
            To purge only the types that you select, click Check None, expand the families and subfamilies that contain the types that you want to purge, select the types, and click OK

              Be really careful using Purge Unused. It gets rid of EVERYTHING not in use, which is sometimes a waste. I prefer users to go to the browser and delete what they dont want.

                That is not entirely true. You can selectivly mark items to be removed. You could use "purge unused" to remove 1 unsed wall family if you wished to do it that way. By default all un-used familes in the project are flagged, but you can un check them all and then go back and just select the items you want removed.

                  Even better, start developing a template that has only the most commonly used walls, floors, ceiling, etc. I am actually in the process of making a "Wall Library" project which contains all wall types that we use in our office, some more common than others, others rare that may never be used. Point being there is somewhere for my users to start from. I'm also making one for Floors, Ceilings, Detail Components, just about every category, priority being on more commonly used categories. This allows us to create a template that is uncluttered from all this unnecessary OOTB stuff and only have what the users need. Including materials, fill patterns, line types, everything that we can possibly think of.

                  If "welcome to Template management" doesn't fit where you are heading with this post, it will be soon, 'cause that's a template management opener if ever I've seen one

                    As for using the Purge Unused...if I have a number of things I know I want to get rid of I will start with "Check None". Then I go in and start checking the items I want to delete. The only time I use the Check All is when I am near the end of a project and want to clean things up.
