3. Run SETBYLAYER to eliminate any color, linetype, or lineweight overrides from objects.
4. Run PURGE to eliminate any leftover layers, linetypes, blocks, and styles.
5. Freeze any unnecessary layers.
6. Apply SAVEAS to save a copy of the file in your “CAD Links” folder (or wherever your standard linked file location is).
