Use overkill to remove stacked objects
Let's say you have a drawing with lots of duplicate or overlapping lines, arcs, and polylines. The OVERKILL command can help remove these objects based on properties.
- Click Home tab > Modify panel (expanded) > Delete Duplicate Objects.
- Select the stacked objects you want to remove.
Using Overkill, you typically would use a crossing selection window to select several objects at once.
- In the Delete Duplicate Objects dialog box, you can further refine the objects you want to remove.
- When you're done, click OK.
Selection cycling is a handy feature that makes it easy to cycle through several stacked objects and select the one you want to modify. I use selection cycling and Overkill on dense, complex drawings with a lot of geometry to check for overlapping objects.
