Probably should've said ``swatches''.

Click on the right-pointing triangle button at the top right of the  
Swatches pallette, select ``Select All Unused'', click on the  
trashcan icon.

The preview is a bitmap (or platform-native vector for PICT or WMF  
previews when using FreeHand) representation of the image used by  
applications which don't have access to a PostScript interpreter when  
placing the image on a page.
