Hello, in exploring premade construction libraries I have loaded a few where I only needed a single object, like a window, but now have such a large collection of constructions in my library that it is starting to cause long loading times or crash the program. Is there a way to purge libraries that have been added? I have added RemoveUnusedDefaultProfiles but that just seems to apply to measures in the model while leaving the library still overfull. Thanks.

Under the Preferences pull down list there is an option for Change Default Libraries that allows for the removal of excess libraries from the default loading sequence.

Thank you for your help! I have spent hours trying to understand why it was taking 20 minutes for OpenStudio to open. Once it did open, this solved the extended time problem.
