Help with deleting circles

Postby Daner » Thu Jul 05, 2018 2:28 am

Im in a jam here, and I cant figure out why my circles wont deleate.

Im making a clock face of numbers, and i created a circular array of copies then put my numbers in the circles.

Im clicking on the circles but theres no option to delete them

Please point me in the right direction

Thanks

Pressing the delete key is easiest but you can also right click on the mouse and choose delete from the pop up menu or choose delete from the Edit menu.

If none of those are working then you either don't have the circles selected or they are on a layer that has been locked preventing you from selecting them. When they are selected they will change colour to magenta.

Thanks all, I did manage to delete the circles.
Im not sure how it happened, buy yes they seemed to be layered...3 layers,

So i just clicked on one and draged it over a tad, then deleted it our normal way with a right click > delete.then 2 more layers from the same circle :shock:

It took me 5 hrs lol to get it.

Its all good

Cheers

Thanks for the help guys

If you have a stack of vectors and you want to delete all of them, click and drag from right to left. Everything that the box touches will be selected. Then you can hit the delete key. All of them will be deleted without worrying about how many there are.
