I am unable to post any files seeking help until the horror that has unfolded is solved.
I can create a new file, from a rhino original template, copy paste to it, or as I am now doing, export selected and import that 3dm file, even a single line, from the project file, AND IT BRINGS IN LOADS OF LINKED BITMAPS that were in use as PictureFrame placements in that project file.
I never embed, I only use default linked mode.
I am not aware of that, I just wanted a single object, not one bitmap,not the entire lot. THEY ARE BROUGHT IN AGAINST MY WILL. I CANT SEE THEM, I CANT FIND AN OPTION TO SHOW THEM, but V6 and v7 love flagging them up upon file opening.
I am grateful for BrianM in the first spotting of this invasion of privacy and security breach.
Before I can post that file I NEED TO NUKE THEM FROM IT. as said I cant see them. Audit3dmfile doesnt show them for me, yet Brian can do that and see them.
What is going on McNeel ?
Where can I go to select them and delete them ?
I need to run a command that will remove them from existing in this V5 file I need to post, BUT I DONT WANT THAT SEEKING OUT THE BITMAPS IN THE PROJECT FILE AS WELL, THAT WOULD DESTROY ME.
THIS IS AN URGENT APPEAL TO ANYONE CAPABLE, at McNeel or elsewhere.
If not possible I am unable to post any more files and as such unable to work, or work until I need help.
I CANNOT POST FILES UNTIL THIS IS SOLVED.
Its to run in V5.
I am win 7 64bit pro and will never manage to create time to create a win10 PC now until this is solved as it means the current workload will be impacted and be prolonged without the ability to forum post, the backlog of other tasks building up will then deny me that time. All my plans wrecked in fact.
