Layers

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to clean up my layers in a particular plan. I have a layer that I can not delete even though it is not being used in plan ( Red + not displayed) in layer sets dialog.

Any ideas for other reasons that I would not be able to delete this layer? Thanks for any help, Bob

I can think of a few reasons you can't delete it:

1) It is one of Chief's protected layers (e.g. Walls, Normal; or HVAC; or Foundation).

2) The layer is referenced within a an Annoset, in which case you would need to remove it from the Annoset definition before it can be deleted.

3) The layer is referenced within a Block definition , in which case you need to delete and purge, or redefine, the block definition before the layer can be deleted.

 

There are probably other reasons - I'm sure other folks will chime in.

Thank you Robert. I tried all that you suggested with no result so I shut off the program to try again later. 

I came back in a few minutes and restarted the program and then I was able to delete the layer. Thanks again! Bob
