Thanks for posting the file, Clive.

Are the existing clean up tools too slow or do you need more / other tools than what is available?

The tools that are typically used for cleaning up drawings at the moment are:
- Block - Purge Unused Blocks
- Layer - Purge Unused Layers
- Modify - Detect Duplicates
- Modify - Detect Zero-Length Entities

Thanks, I understand. I'm always looking at ways to improve performance but that is not the top priority as the vast majority of QCAD users operate with files with far less than 10'000 entities.

A tip of the top of my head:
- open the file, purge all unused blocks and layers
- save the file under a new name
- close and re-open the file

Doing this before anything else can speed things up, especially if there are many unused blocks with many entities in them.
