Tools to find and erase proxy objects from the drawing.

General Usage Instructions

ObjectARX applications can use custom objects.

If these applications or the corresponding object activators (Object Enabler) are not available when opening such a file, Autodesk® AutoCAD® converts these objects "proxy objects" (or zombie).

When you're sure you do not need these objects can be deleted to reduce the file. To do this, run the command KILLZOMBIES and choose the applications for which you want to delete the proxy objects.

A LISP function named gc-killallzombies removes all the proxy objects and proxy entities found in the drawing.
(gc-killallzombies) returns a list of the quantities of objects found and erased of type:
(("ProxyEntity" found erased) ("ProxyObject" found erased))
