Can't delete lines

Post by raye321 »

Hi, I did a project on vpro 9.0 There are lines that form a very small rectangle that I can't delete. It is so small, I didnt notice it until I ran the project and the 1/8" bit I was using made a mark on the wood. Anyone know How to delete it?

If you zoom right in it should make it large enough to select, if that doesn't work can you box select it? If you can't then it might be because it is grouped with something else You could try moving other parts to a different layer until it is isolated & then delete that layer but remember not to trannsfer the vectors to another layer :lol: :lol:

I can't box select it either. I'll give it a try.
Thanks

Hi Ray,

Can you post your file here? I’m sure we can help you instantly if we see the file.

(Could be a “Locked Layer”, but won’t know until you post your file or you check that yourself.)

Like Michael says if the file isn't copyright then posting it here will help experts like him sort the problem for you, if the part you can't delete is grouped with other items then that will prevent you box selecting it, maybe try ungrouping everything before trying to select it. :lol: :lol:

if you can't post the file then consider sending it to vectric support to help. :lol: :lol:

Sounds to me like there is a LOCKED layer in which the tiny square is attached to OR the tiny square is part of a GROUP of vectors!

Can you post your file here for review provided there is no copyright material included with the file???
