Drawing view deleted, but model reference is still there?

Has anybody else run into this problem before, and if so, what was your solution? Even if I delete the drawing sheet entirely, the model reference list remains unchanged.

 

FWIW, both the drawing and model in question contain iLogic rules. The drawing was previously used for another model, but then I deleted that model and inserted a new one. The reference to the old model still exists, which is a deal-breaker for another rule I'm trying to run.

Thanks,

Steve

I don't have any tools to purge the reference from the drawing, the drawing is corrupted.

If you attach the files in question, then we can have a look for you.

It is difficult to comment on something we cannot see.

Cheers

Jon.

Thanks for your reply, Jon.

 

I've attached what *should* be a completely blank drawing, but if you go to Manage tab > Replace Model Reference, you'll see two models listed.

Thanks for the drawing, it looks to me that there has been some corruption in the drawing. It is not something you can reproduce, so possibly something went wrong at the time the view was deleted, the reference should have been deleted at the same time.

It could have been a crash or Inventor going into a "Not Responding" phase or possible the loss of the network connection.

I think this is a one off and one we have to be aware of.

Thanks for your response, Jon.

 

Do I have any options besides creating a new drawing from scratch? Is there any way to "purge" the references so I can keep the current drawing?
