How to get rid of old CAD Lines

Recommended Posts

I have looked and looked in available resources for an answer but all I can find is how to create a CAD Line. I'm working on the final drawings that I will be sending to my General Contractor and I realized there is what I believe to be a stray CAD Line on the first floor plan that serves no purpose and is a little distracting. I have tried selecting it but I cannot. I have tried selecting things at that same point and used the TAB key to no avail. I do have an earlier iteration that does not have this line but I have done a great deal of work between that version of the plans and this final one. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I see you mentioned Pro 2021.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

Then it's probably not a CAD line, but something generated by the program.


Post a screen capture showing the line and the plan file (close Pro first) for the best answer.

Thank you so very much. I should have seen that camera. This has been driving me nuts for days. I have already added a winder at the bottom of the stairs. I will consider moving the door and adding a landing and another stair but my contractor didn't think we should have another door coming into the living room. I'll run your suggestion by him.

Thanks again,
