I've often found on projects that have not been managed properly that there are a large number of unused .gsm in the embedded library.

There should be a 'Purge Unused' function as per the attribute manager.

I agree.
This is especially a concern when doing interior design with dozens of high-poly .gsm models imported from Sketchup 3Dwarehouse.

While not excactly what you are asking for, it is possible to see which objects are being used and if you select individual parts in the library manager you can delete them and see if they are in use as well. This might be helpful, while we wait for ArchiCAD 23 to implement this Wink

Allthough a blind purge button is quite dangerous for inexperienced users I would say. If I have several stairs that I am trying out during design development and a colleague just purged the ones I wasn't using in model, I'd be a bit annoyed.

Good idea. Purge is good when finishing the project. Also when making templates. Not to mention cleaning the project. When dealing with big projects this is more important.
