Extract List of Graphic Entities Declared and Being Used (Newbie Help)

Hi All,


I don't know ACL (can barely spell it) - but I need to know of a simple way of extracting a list of all of the graphic entities in use in my XML doc (as what I'm really trying to do is to both eliminate / delete unused graphic entities, as well as eliminate / delete graphics that I'm not using in my current XML doc.)


I can see them in the Arbortext Graphic Entities ('Count Uses') Dialog box, but I don't know how to dump them out to a text file, .csv, .xls or whatever - some format that I can rack and stack them in.


It's a military XML tech manual (LOGSA MIL-STD 40051-2 chg 3, ASRL Construct 3.27, Stylesheet Fileset V1.8)


I know one of you gurus can pass me a simple ACL command line whoozit to dump the list of used/unused graphic entities.


Barring that, I'm relegated to screenshotting and OCRing a gazillion pages of the Arbortext Graphic Entities Dialog box ('Count Uses'), in order to rack and stack the list of 1500 plus graphic files to eliminate some 500+ of them that I don't need - and need not have them in the batch for processing or delivery.


So, if one of you folks would be so kind... (consider it like a 'green' gift... save so many of the OCR pixels from being wasted.)


Thanks,


Bob Williams

I found using that code in later releases of AE, it removes all entities.
Including the used ones. I hope it is just me, but that has been my
results.
