Undeletable work axes

I can't seem to get rid of these no longer needed work axes. Any idea why?

(Don't wory about the missing file references, you shouldn't need them.)

It looks like they were created as part of the pattern.  Just edit the pattern and un-select the axis from participating in the pattern.  Then the only one you will have is the original, which you can delete if you need to.

If it is the origin plane you can't delete it, but you can turn the visibility of them on or off by right-clicking on them and selecting visibility. if it is a user created plane then right-click it and select delete. The origin planes can not be deleted.

I don't know why they are there. The only way I could get rid of them was to pull the End of Folder marker above Pattern3, put in a new pattern and delete all features below EOP.

Looks like maybe you can just change the visibility of the work features too. Since they don't seem to exist in the browser you can't turn the visibility back on.

There isn't any original axis to deselect or delete.

This seems to work fine. I was assuming that they would come back when the number of slots changed, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Thanks!

It is really interesting that how these work axis are created. However, you could use the attached iLogic rule to remove them.

 

Hope it helpful for you!
