Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately, we currently do not support the capability to automatically delete duplicate objects. Also, if you delete a component in a Quadcept database, I am afraid the link between the components in the database and design documents will be lost, and it is difficult to avoid this.
To delete duplicate components using currently-supported features, the following steps will be required.
1) Search a Quadcept database by the file name of a duplicate component.
2) Delete all the duplicate components.
3) Search for Quadcept projects in which the component is used.
4) Replace the deleted components with the component you have kept in the database.
I understand that this was not the answer you were expecting, but I would appreciate your understanding in this matter.
By the way, the upcoming new version, Quadcept v10, will offer a project searching tool called Quadcept ProjectFinder. With this tool, you will be able to find projects by a component name or ID.
In addition, Quadcept v10 will provide a new Quadcept database called "master-db" for sharing objects. "master-db" is a read-only database that is editable only by a specific user, and helps to avoid the registration of unnecessary components.
I hope these features help your library management.
Thank you very much.
