MasterDEL is a plugin that allows you to delete all the same entities from a group of various selected entities.

General Usage Instructions

The plugin mainly consists of 2 parts 

  1. The MasterDEL(MD Mdel) command will ask you to select your work area, the entities that are within this area will be processed, and then you will have to choose an entity type (circle, line, point), and automatically all entities of the same type will be deleted 
  2. Short commands have been loaded to delete specific entities. All you have to do is select your work area along with the entities. 

The short commands are: 

  • DH deletes hatches 
  • DTX deletes texts 
  • DL deletes leaders 
  • DP erases points 
  • DD delete dimensions 
  • DB delete blocks 


The central command (masterdel) is universal since with it you can delete all the entities of a specific type from a selected group with more entities.  

Once the command (MASTERDEL) is called, you will have to select the area in which you want to work, any entity (circles, lines, points, etc.) that is in the selection range will be processed.  

Press the enter key to continue  

The plugin will ask you to select an entity type you want to delete (circle, point, line, polylines, dimensions, leaders...etc). 

For example a hatch. 

Finish by pressing the enter key.  

Automatically all the entities that are of the same type as the one you selected will be deleted, in this case, it will delete all the hatches that are within the selection.
