How do I delete a cartogramma?

I have downloaded and installed the Cartogramma extension for Civil 3D 2012.  It did exactly what I was looking for but now I just have one problem.  How do I get rid of it?  Now that it's created in my drawing it automatically updates every time I rebuild my corridor.  The update takes a significant amount of time to complete and I have to disable my undo log or it will crash Civil 3D.


I've erased all objects that it creates but when it updates everything comes back.  I was going to try to use the "erase cartogramma" function but that allows me to pick one object at a time and I have about 75,000 objects to clear everything out.


I'm sure I can probably uninstall the extension and that would keep it from updating but it is a fairly useful tool so I'd like to learn how to use it properly.

There is a tool to delete the cartogramma in the same location as create or edit one.

Are you referring to the "erase cartogramma" function listed with Create and Edit?  I tried that but when I select an object within the cartogramma nothing happens, it just keeps asking me to select a cartogramma.  Since the cartogramma is made up of separate objects I have no idea which one of those objects is the "key" object to select.
