DFT files massive with embedded object (spreadsheet)


Hi,
I'm having a problem with a SE2d file I'm using which has an embedded spreadsheet
in it.
I don't need it, but when I delete the one cell shown on screen it actually increases
the file size of the DFT file.
Is there a way to view all the embedded objects in a SE2d DFT file?
Is there a way to delete/purge the spreadsheet from the drawing?
Thanks,
-Andy.

Re: DFT files massive with embedded object (spreadsheet)


I've tried that, but it only has the correct "External Link" I knew was in there,
it's more that there's a cell I accidentally "cut & Pasted" onto the main sheet.
I then deleted this, but that only made the file larger.

Re: DFT files massive with embedded object (spreadsheet) - Found it


I was cutting and pasting a drawing from a MS Word Document, so it was actually a
MSWord document inside the DFT file.
I've removed the offending image and replaced with one straight out of the JPG.
