Delete Missing Components from a Model (2023 SP1)

You can delete all missing components from a model in the Find References dialog box.

  3. Click Delete Missing References.

    The Confirm Delete dialog box opens.

    If you previously selected Don't show again in the Confirm Delete dialog box, the dialog box does not open, and the missing components are deleted when you click Delete Missing References.

    To show the dialog box, click Tools > Options and under Messages/Errors/Warnings, click Dismissed messages. Clear Do you really want to delete the following item(s)?.

  4. In the Confirm Delete dialog box, click Yes to All to delete all the missing components.
