Deleted surfaces keeps reappearing

Hi,

 

I got a lot of surfaces that are not in my PLN project and i delete them.

All good until i open AC again, they are still there.

 

Where are these missing surfaces actually? How to delete them FOREVER?

 

PS: On the linked library only AC26 and MEP26 library are loaded.

 

Thank you

As they are underlined, it means they are coming from a MASTER_GDL object in a loaded library.

If you only have those standard libraries loaded (I don't think there is anything in there), I would have a look in your Embedded library as well.

 

Every time you reload the libraries, the MASTER_GDL object will re-create the attributes, so you can't delete them permanently until you delete the MASTER_GDL file.

 

Also as the are RAL surfaces, do you have an RAL goodie (add-on) loaded?

Hi,

As you said, it was something in the embedded library that after i deleted them they didn't reappear.

PS: No i don't have RAL libraries. 

 

Thanks Barry
