Design File Cleanup Dialog
Cleanup actions are performed via the Design File Cleanup dialog. You can set the desired cleanup action(s) from the dialog’s General tab, or you can go to each cleanup action’s individual tab and set the cleanup action as well as further restrict or expand the search criteria.
Some cleanup actions can be performed simultaneously. For example, you can instruct Design File Cleanup to select all Duplicates and flag all Overlaps at the same time. When running Interactive mode, no other cleanup actions can be performed.
Results of cleanup actions are displayed in the # Found section on the Design File Cleanup dialog’s General tab, as well as in status bar.
