I have an off page connector that I can't delete. It has a process line tied to it but is just floating out in the drawing. I have tried to disconnect it but when I do the program crashes. I have also had other connectors that I have tried to disconnect and when I do the program crashes as well. It is not just this certain off page connector. It also has a little exclamation triangle in the little green connected circle. Are there any suggestions for this problem? Thanks.
So when you right-click on the Offpage Connector, and select from the menu 'Offpage Connector', what options is it giving you there? Have you tried disconnecting from there? (Or is this what you're already doing?). Also, when you say it's tied to a process line and it's just floating out there, does that mean you can't see the line - was that line deleted?
Or please give us an update here if you've got this working now.
When I right click on the off page connector I get the choice of "view connected" "open connected drawing" and "disconnect". When I go to disconnect is when the program crashes. The process line is actually connected to the off page connector but nothing else. I can't delete either one. I finally just ended up moving it off of the printable area so that I could plot it out. I currently am still unable to delete it. I also just tried to disconnect it again but it crashed AutoCad.
Are you able to 'trim' that process line to sever it from the OPC and then disconnect and delete the OPC? Try by drawing an AutoCAD line perpendicular to the process line, just off the OPC. Trim from there. Now disconnect and delete OPC. Success?
I tried that and I was able to trim away the line and delete the line but still wasn't able to disconnect or delete the OPC. AutoCAD crashed when trying to disconnect.
Sorry for not replying sooner. This fell off my radar. Any further progress with this or is it still crashing on you?
No further progress on it. I just tried it again this morning and it crashed the program again. I tried deleting it as well with no luck.
Here are some more things to try:
__AUDIT the drawing.
__AUDITPROJECT. First Remove Drawing from Project, then Auditproject, then Copy Drawing [back] to Project.
__And to cover the bases, maybe try Purging the Data Cache. (With Plant 3D and any Autodesk programs closed, go to Run and browse for the utility PnPPURGELOCALUSERCACHE.exe)
__Also, be sure to read the Help docs on the new features of the 2014 OPCs (which will also explain that exclamation triangle).
__And if this is limited to a single drawing, may be some odd corruption in that one drawing and perhap less hassle to just redo that single drawing(?)
I hope some of this helps.
Has this been solved?
I have the exact same issue. Lines that used to be connected to OPC cannot be deleted, and the OPC itself cannot be deleted. The yellow exclamation triangle shows up on the connection but it doesn't offer any changes to be accepted. I tried all of the suggested remedies except for purge user cache (I ran a search for PnPPURGE... and my computer did not find the exe file). None of them worked for me. I am having this issue on more than one page.
If anyone has a solution please let me know. Thanks.
I have yet to find a solution to this problem. I am still having the same problems. I have tried the suggestions from above with no success. It is also not a problem that I come across in only one single drawing. This is happening to multiple drawings in multiple projects.
