Deleting Assets from the Asset Browser

I'm updating our Revit template in Revit Structure 2013. When I look into the Asset Browser in the unreferenced library there are a lot of Assets wich are incremented [(1), (2), (3),...]. I don't need these Assets in my template, but I can't remove them because the unreferenced folder is locked. How can I delete these Assets?

Any answers to this one anybody. Seeing as we added them in the first place would be good to be able to delete mistakes.!!

Hi. The graphics asset is there by defualt. You have 3 other assets you can add, appearance, thermal, and physical.


The appearance asset only controls the rendering appearance in addition to the realistic visual style and ray trace if applicable. Therefore, if you add it, you can only replace it. It has no other significance.

The thermal and physical assets can be deleted at any time. If you hover over the asset in the materials editor, you will get an x at the end which allows you to remove that asset.
