Click the + sign in front of the texture list to see what the name of the texture is.

Then, go to Options > Attribute Manager and select the Materials tab. Click the column heading to sort the materials by the assigned texture. Locate the material(s) that use the missing texture. If they are in use, then redefine to use a different texture or find the missing one and add it to your project library.

If you do not see the missing texture in the materials list, then a library part is calling for it. You'll have to figure out (slow process) which part that is...

I just looked through 75 layouts, for one deleted title type
If Library Manager can find it.... I WISH "Find & Select" could.

Did you try using a schedule (project index)? If you generate a drawing list and add the Title, you can see which titles are associated with every drawing on every sheet...

Also, see my response to your wish/poll: schedules let you customize your search list and let you select anything in 2D or 3D.

That would be worth a Tip of the Month award (if there is still such a thing ). It is very useful little trick.
