I have read about several people being able to make a purge mapkey. Which takes all the previous versions of a file and purges them into one so that it cleans up the number of files that you have. But I don't know how to do it. Can anyone give some instructions on how to do it?

thanks for the help

Better than that, use spekan Purge Utility. Great little piece of sofware.

Thanks for the help, it is exactly what I was looking for.  Unofortunatley there beta testing isn't working yet and it is specifically used for Pro-E Wildfire 2.  Does anyone know how to make a mapkey that activates an outside program, activates it and closes it?  I have tried several macro programs but haven't found one that works out of Pro-E yet. Also they all depend on mouse movements as opposed to file locations, so if moves in explorer it doesn't click on the right thing.  Any suggestions?

Thanks.

When making a mapkey, select the "OS Script" tab. Type into the box the full path to the command to activate(ie. C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\NOTEPAD.EXE). Select 'OK'.

Now Notepad will open with this command.

That sounds like it is what I'm looking for.  But is there a way that I can have it actually open, activate and close the program all within wildfire?
