Missing library part

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi

I have a missing library part that is driving me nuts. I've searched far and wide for it and gone through all the various Find methods recommended in the Help guide to no avail.

Is there a way to force ARCHICAD to remove a warning? Or is there a way to "purge" unused Embedded objects in the model?

great question.
if you get an answer.......that'll be awesome.
I'm surprised that Archicad hasn't yet figured out how to just have a "remove offending object" button or something to that nature that if the object is not there....remove it or an easier way to locate a darn object.

I wish the program had a scanning type function like when you can locate windows or doors thru the scheduler and see EXACTLY right where they are in plan.

If it's in the model, it's not "unused." Is this a 3D object or a 2D object? (2D can be lurking in a section/elevation, or detail)

You might try creating a schedule for this object, which could tell you which layer/floor/etc. it is hiding on.

It's a 3D object.
I've had a look at the Object and the "missing" library part is not there.
It could also be a missing macro that the object is calling.

Any tips on how I would find that missing macro?

It might be good to end the suspense and include a screen capture of the error message.

See attached, many thanks.
What happens when you highlight the object and click on "More Info"?

No can do. It is greyed out even when offending object is selected.
