Pathfinder in drawing environment?

N/A
Hello
Im using Solid Edge ST4 academic.
I have a question about the draft environment.
I have a assembly and i make a drawing out of that and start to do broken-out cuts or detail views.
Then for example, i make a mistake(in the cutting depth or positioning of the cut). Where can i just delete the last borken-out cut or detail view, but still keep the same drawing view?
Is there in the draft environment such a thing as the pathfinder?
I was looking for this but i couldn't find it.
Normally what i did, was just deleted the whole drawing view, but this is bad if i just made 3 broken-out's on that and with the 4'th i make a mistake.
All the best to you and im looking forward to your replies.

Good Morning,
For regular detail views, you can select the profile of the Source
balloon, and at the end of the ribbon bar is an option to Define Profile
that will let you move, or adjust the balloon. The detail view will
update to show what is in the source balloon.
Editing a Broken-Out section is a little different than editing most
other features. You have to turn on the profile of the section by right
clicking the view, opening the view properties to the General tab, and
checking the box next to Show Broken-Out Section view profiles
From the Help file:
Modifying the section view profile
You can modify the profile or extent depth for an existing broken-out
section view. You must first select the Show Broken-Out Section View
Profiles option on the General page (Drawing View Properties dialog box
to make the profile accessible. Then, you can do either of the following:
Select the broken-out section view profile to edit the broken-out
section view. You can use the options on the Broken-Out Profile
Selection command bar to modify the profile or extent depth of the
broken-out section view.
Select the broken-out section view profile to delete it using the Delete
key. This also deletes the broken-out section view.
When you edit a broken-out section view profile or change the extent
depth, you need to update the drawing view using the Update Views command.

I hope this helps.
