How to delete parts unused in an assembly from PartStudio Tab?

Hi,

Case:
1. Received a big assy. (~2000 parts 1 STEP file)
2. Imoprted to One Document.
3. Result: New document with 1 CAD Import TAB, 1 main assy TAB, 1 zylion subassy Tabs, and 1 PartStudio tab with two zylions parts.
4. Needed just one subassy (~20 parts) from that big assy.
5. Moved subasssy to new document and deleted old document.
6. Result: New document with 1 beautiful subassy and 1 PartStudio with two zylions parts.

Question is:
Is it possible to somehow remove those (2 zylions  - 20) parts unused in the subassy from PartStudioTab ?
Other than digging in that messy PartStudio and picking them one by one.

    Well, Yes indeed.
    1. You have to export that subassy from newly created document.
    2. And then import that stuff once again into the OS.

    And that's how you are able to get rid of those unused parts.
    Well, You are loosing an easy way to upgrade your assy from imoprted step file.
