CAN'T DELETE BALLON FROM DRAWING VIEW

Creator

Hello, For some reason I can't delete a ballon from a drawing view.  I don't know what the deal is. But the ballon is on the green outline so I don't know if that has some weird interferance, just never had such a problem before. I have attached an image.  Anyone have any suggestions?  Thank you.

Hi @GreatScott88,

 

Select "Menu > Information > Object" and select the balloon.  Does the information help you determine why it can't be deleted?  E.g., Is it on a selectable layer?

Yep that helps me select it, but when I hit delete it won't delete. Thanks for that tip, hopefully I get delete it or hide it here.

Hi @GreatScott88,

try part cleanup, save and close NX. Reopen the file and try to delete.

Thank you...

When this happened, did you try save-close and restart NX -re-open the file ?
Or, is it persistent ?

Hi @1u7obd,

In my experience there are two situation that I've encountered :

  1. Balloon on layer not selectable
  2. Situation resolved with my suggestion. Reason ? Ask to GTAC.
Thank you...

Go into your Reuse library, Look under custom Library symbol, are there some folders in here?  Click around in this area, and test delete stuff see if this symbol or object is in this location.  Random thought.

Quite often "this type of error" cannot be repeated , if one save- close- exit- start-open.
It is the running software that has been "corrupted" rather than the file.
I saw such a case this week where one person could not delete Sheet1 in a drawing file.
That file was ok as soon as he had restarted NX.
