View Full Version : Menu's fill up with junk

11 November 2003, 08:45 PM
Ok, you are working on a project, you add materials, textures, animations, ipo's etc.

If you were to try and delete everything u had made, how would all the materials and stuff get deleted?

I know that you can hit the x and it will be gone, but it is still sitting in the menu for when you want to add a new material.

Is it possible to get rid of all the unused things in the boxes?

Sure there is... every "data" is keep in memory until a file (the same or another) is opened. So, a reopen-last command will do what you whant.

Keep in mind that any data that is not linked to anything is NOT STORED in file when you save your work.. so if you have material X without any user and you save and reopen the file... Material X is gone for good.

does this apply to IPOs , textures, objects etc?

the unused ones are the ones with the O next to them right?
