How do I Remove a merged/Appended model from nwf in Navisworks

Hi

 

Can anyone please help me. I understand I can't remove a merged dwg from from an nwd but is there a way to remove a dwg from an nwf without hiding it. There must be a way to completely unreference the file from an nwf.

 

Thanks

In the selection tree you can right click on the file and choose delete

Anyone have any updates for this thread? I have run into the same problem. Simply right clicking in the selection tree does got get me a remove/delete option. I am using 2014/2015 Manage (both versions have same issue)

OK, I did notice that once a second item is appended, you get a delete option from right click but you can only delete one. Once you delete that one, the option disappears for the remaining item.

You should use the "standard" view on the selection three
Then you should select the file in the tree.
Then you can use the "delete" key of your keyboard.

If you want to remove more than one file, it is a known issue that Shift+Selection to select a range does not always works.
But it always works for me in the following sequce:
Scroll down to the last of the files that you want to delete.
Select it.
Select the one above also using Ctrl+Mouse
Then scroll up
Then select the most upper file using Shift+Mouse
then use the "Del" key on your keyboard
