can't remove features from layers


New member
Is it just me, or is it impossible to remove a feature from a layer? I can't do it. What I end up doing is deleting the layer, then recreating it. The minus button never works. What gives?

Go Browns (ha ha)


In the Layers Dialog Box, click on Show > Layer Items. Right-click on the item you want to delete, and select Remove Item.

This is also a great way to move items from one layer to another by cutting and pasting them.

In 2001, you must sometimes completely back up through the DONE options. If you do not and attempt to take a shortcut by choosing a top DONE, Pro/E will not record your changes.
