All of Gile's apps are top notch
I tried EVERYTHING to remove proxy graphics left over from Civil 3D exports and nothing worked. All the other processes were so involved, laborous, and complicated and didn't really solve the problem. ZombieKiller is a 2 click process that works so well. Problem solved.
I looked at a bunch of other solutions and this is the best! Why there isn't a function built into AutoCAD escapes me.
Our company has been plagued with proxy entities for many years; they made their way into our templates, and have poisoned every project ever since. Nothing worked to remove them until I found this app. Works exactly as expected.
Finally, after spending hours, and hours of drafting time and research I have a way to remove C3D proxies. Just Amazing...
Excellent app, been struggling with proxy images and the copy to clipboard failure, this works like a charm!
Thanks for this great app. It work great for getting rid of the "Copy to Clipboard failed" errors.
I tried it, unfortunately the program only removes a few proxy objects from my drawing, some kind of proxy can't be deleted.
Can you give me your email address, I would like to send the drawing for you to test
gets ride of items from other Autocad files that I get containing civil and sprinkler items as do not need in my drawings
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
I wish I had time to spend programming as I did back in the old days; this fixes a very frustrating problem, thank you!
The easiest method to clear Proxies, thank you again.
At least I get to kill zombies here.
The dgnpurge didn't work because of these AcDbZombieObject, despite it is working on another computer and the same dwg file. With ZombieKiller the problem is solved. My only one remark is that I can't start script on multiple dwg files with the zombie killer because of the dialog box which appears and needs approval.
I have Zombie Killer installed for my ACAD MEP 2013. I love it. BUT.... When I use it and save the file, and then someone with ACAD Architecture 2012 attempts to open it, they get a FATAL ERROR. Help! This is causing a major issue with our production and deadlines! Thanks!
use the application and then resave the autocad file to version 2010 or 2007 and should be all fine
Very reliable - gets rid of annoying unpurgeable zombie entities with one click! Best of all - it's free! Death to zombies!
Wonderful plugin, hasn't let me down yet. When Purge and wblock fails, here comes Zombiekiller to the rescue. The name suits this plugin perfectly. This plugin combined with Xpurge turned a 74,000 KB drawing to 450 KB, like magic :-)
Great plugin for AutoCAD!
Are you tired of drawings from outside sources senselessly crashing your AutoCAD without warning? Here is the simple and easy fix to get rid of those pesky proxy zombies wandering aimlessly through your drawing database.
Simple to use and very effective in removing proxy junk form your files.
Fantastic! it just works!
Used to get rid of the pesky proxy objects when using our templates.
I have spent years waiting for something like this addin. Works 100%. Great Job
