Custom Selection by Size

Recommended Posts

Here's an easy question for a script newbie.

How do I create a custom selection of objects that are below a minimum size?

Specifically, polygons that are below 1" ?X and 1" ?Y

I am importing several Nature DWGs from an illustrator file and want a way of deleting tiny little polys.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

GJ

Another way of doing this would be to purchase the Vectorbits Optimise Drawing plug-in. It includes an option to Delete objects smaller than a user specified size.

It does what you want very effectively - be careful though because it does not filter by Active class or Layer. It deletes everything in the drawing file smaller than the user specified size.

That worked great! There are other great features in that plugin as well. I was already a been a big fan of VectorMove.

Thanks,
