If not, then try going into the linetype menu and select Manage. There will be a list of linetypes that are in the drawing or were used in the drawing, but were deleted. If you select Purge, the action will purge any linetypes that are no longer in your drawing. That means that the linetype that you deleted, but still shows up in the linetype list will be gone.
If it doesn't purge it, that would indicate that the line is still somewhere in the drawing.
A simple solution for that would be to turn on all of your layers and window extents. Then, with layer search on, erase, mask, linetype, area. Wherever the linetype is hidden, then it will be erased.
You can then go to linetype, manage and run the purge again.
A caveat would be if the linetype is embedded in a symbol, it might not be able to be removed with a purge. I can see that happening if one has a linetype with lettering such as a gas line or an electrical line that is hooked onto an appliance. The line length could be quite small, but any length at all would be enough to make it show up in the linetype list.
I'll have to get back to you on this one as my PC gave up on me & now catching up with work. (see my other post on DC18 softlock)
However, I can report the line type that still appears after being deleted (as discussed before) only appears in the drawing file it was created, not others. The File Purge I've always wondered if I was using this correctly as after ticking all the revelant boxes, there's no button to press to instigate the Purge, so have thought, its one of those items when one exits DC that get done ? Tried this as well, but still appears in the drawing file it was created.
As for adjusting ini files with the TRUE/FALSE items, I've never altered these (in an editor ?) as don't like getting too under the hood in fear of making DC go 'kaput'. Wouldn't mind though seeing how this is done, is there a video on this or file screen capture example somewhere ?
Over & out,
Later...back to work.
