Drawing Properties

Set the advanced option to TRUE (default) to delete unnecessary drawing files. If you do not want to do this, set it to FALSE. This advanced option deletes the dg files older than seven days, which is the default value for the advanced option XS_DELETE_UNNECESSARY_DG_FILES_SAFETY_PERIOD.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).

Please allow deleting the files on every save, not only when exit the model.
