Scope Box Purge

Scope Box Purge

Win64, English

Omnia Revit
Quickly purges unused Scope Boxes from your Autodesk® Revit® project, but can also be used to get an overview of views and elements are using which Scope Box.

General Usage Instructions

When you are curious about the Scope Box usage in your project, start the Application. The icon should be available on the Add-ins ribbon.

You will be presented with a list of Scope Boxes, green for used ones, red for unused, and grey for Scope Boxes which can't be deleted because they are pinned grouped or used by another user.
Just Click Delete Unused to delete all unused Scope Boxes - those which are not used by any views, levels, grids, or reference planes.

If you would like to select exactly which Scope Boxes to delete instead of all unused you may also check the box before each Scope Box and use the Delete Checked button.
However, be careful - because this button will also allow you to delete green Scope Boxes, that is - Scope Boxes which are in use in your project. The idea of this is to enable you to delete all Scope Boxes in a project.

To find out where a Scope Box is used, just double-click it and you will be presented with a list of views, levels, grids, or reference planes that are set to follow that Scope Box.

From there you can also double-click a View to make it the active view in your Revit window.
