There is a 'phantom element' my model file which I was using as part of a Point Control that is causing me problems.  I can click on it in plan view, but it does not appear when I open Project Explorer. Selecting the element and using the delete element command doesn't erase the element. How can I get rid of it?


  1. Open level manager & create a new “junk” level
  2. Select the elements
  3. Set elements to “junk” level
  4. Use keyin "level element delete junk"

Here is an example below:
