If necessary, you can delete existing dimensions from the Tekla EPM material database.
- In the shape list of the Shape / Grade / Size Maintenance dialog box, select the shape.
- Open the Dimensions tab.
In the Dimension list, select the dimensions that you want to delete.
To select multiple items, hold down Ctrl.
To select a range of subsequent items, hold down Shift.
- Click Delete Dimension in the lower-right corner of the dialog box.
To permanently delete the dimensions, click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.
If a single dimension that you are trying to delete is used somewhere else in Tekla EPM, a notification message appears and allows you to see where the dimension is used.
If multiple dimensions that you are trying to delete are used somewhere else in Tekla EPM, notification messages appear, telling you that the dimensions are used somewhere else in Tekla EPM. Then, deleting the selected dimensions is canceled.
To view where the single
dimension is used, click OK.
A dialog box opens, displaying the jobs where the dimension is used.
Do one of the following:
- View where the dimension is used, and click OK to close the dialog box without deleting the dimension.
- If you are sure that you want to delete the dimension, click Force Delete, select the new dimension that will be used elsewhere in Tekla EPM instead of the dimension that you are deleting, and click Perform Force Delete.
