The problem is that i find an invalid component in my data manager that does not show in the drawing.

I have tried everything turn on  / off layers, removed xref's, changed the point style but nothing is showing.

I also purged and audit the drawing / project but no results.

In order to remove this component i am out of idea's.


does anyone have a solution

Try closing any drawings you may have open in the project. Make sure no one else is in the project. Then in Project Manager run Audit Project (right click over project name). Then to be thorough, restart Plant 3D and open that project, running Audit Project once more.

I have removed all the valves from my drawing, and yet they remain visible in the datamanger list. Can someone tell me how to delete them from the list or change a setting that will synchronize my datamanger with by current drawing? Thanks

Has this been resolved yet?


Asking a dumb question (b/c I've done it), can you switch the data manager filter to show only the current drawing data?
