Q - question

How to preset options in the Purge dialog?

A - answer If you want to preset purge settings before you launch the AutoCAD Purge dialog (PURGE) or if you want to preset the options globally for all users, you can employ the Registry keys.

Run REGEDIT, go to the branch of the respective profile in your AutoCAD version - e.g.: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R23.1\ACAD-3001:409\Profiles\<< Unnamed profile>>\Dialogs\PurgeDialog and here you can edit the individual values, e.g. EmptyObj (since version 2020 EmptyTextObj and ZeroLengthObj), OrphanedData, Nested, etc.
