finding embedded files

A few weeks ago I posted about a large file size and how to see a list of the embedded files. As suggested I backed up the entire plan to a folder and was able to see the list. I have tried to locate the "Brick" and "Siding" files in the plan and can't. Is there a way to find where in a plan a particular texture or symbol is used?

Did you PURGE the Materials before doing the backup , that should remove any Materials you have "tried" but are no longer using....

 

I don't know of a way to find a particular material in the Plan though..... deleting or moving the file out of the folder may show you in a 3D Camera...maybe? but I think Chief will just use a default material in that case ? not 100% sure ...or it will look in the Chief Data Folder>Textures for it instead if needed.

You can sometimes find a particular material in a plan by generating a material list and then looking for that material in the Description column.

Select that row and on the Edit menu select Find Object in plan.
