How to erase proxy objects from a drawing?

A - answer Proxy objects are supplemental representations of the original intelligent objects from AutoCAD add-on applications.

The most appropriate way to "remove" them is to load their original application or their "object enabler" (free runtime version of that application), or to explode the intelligent objects to standard AutoCAD entities yet before saving in the original application.

If you really want to get rid of the proxy entities in your DWG drawing you can use the free LISP utility DelProxy available on

Load it with APPLOAD and run the DelProxy command. This command deletes both proxy entities in the drawing and invisible proxy objects in drawing tables.
