I can delete every unused material except one in the Material Editor.
I am trying to make the custom Material library and somehow
I have got the Material I cannot delete.
Please advise something wrong with this material?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by bob.holland. See the answer in context.
You need to set the part to something like generic with a default appearance.
Save your file.
Then go to the manage tab and use purge to remove then from your document.
You may still then need to remove a leftover appearnace.
Please try this and let me know if this does or does not work.
Is the "Appearance" being using in the current open document? You can't delete a item that is being used in the current opened document.
No, this not deleteable part uses different appearance.
Current part uses another Material with different appereance and physical properties.
As you can see from video I can delete not used Material.
I even cannot assign this problematic Material to the part.
Try using the "Clear Appearance Overrides" and see it that helps to delete the "Appearance" item. If it's not used it should be able to be deleted from the "Current" folder.
You may need to close the assembly and re-open it.
This parts has no any overrides.
This material has a copy in the Material list but no chance to delete it, see picture attached.
I did all possible ways except probably a spell exile dancing but seems like it a permanent problem.
Can you delete other items in your Library?
Could somehow been corrupt when it was created.
Yes I can add others and delete when not used. Seems it some sort of corruption.
It is just one file and so far not repeated problem nevertheless I am creating the own library. Inventor had crashed just three times so far but compare to 2013 it going much and much better. I could not make own library in 2013 at all due to enormous amount of crashes and errors and jumped to 2014 from 2012.
Make sure you have installed all the SP's and Fixes
I started 2014 just because the SP was issued. I have toooo sad experience with 2013 I started right I receive it. Of course I have SP and several more updates installed.
Can you please post your file or private message me with it so that I can take a look at it.
