I deleted an entire handrail from my model. In document manager there is now a heading with a red triangle that has an ! in it titled "Model Object Deleted" with a couple of single part drawings listed below it. This is not in the Update Required section and no direction is given in the Document Manager as to what is required for drawings in this Model Object Deleted section. Please advise what this section in Document Manager requires.

I am using Advance Steel 2014.

Hi Jerry


When you erase an object from a model that has already been detailed you will get a cautionary notice warning “Model object deleted” when opening the Document Manager. The objects that have been deleted are displayed below the name of the drawing. Select each one to see the object that was deleted. See attached document.


If you decide you want to keep the changes select the Update required notification and then select force update to the right of the window to accept the changes. Additionally if you want to keep a record of the changes you can select Update Revision.


You can delete the Model object deleted folder along with the Unknown folder.


If you chose Update Revision the changes will be created and a revision mark (A) will follow the drawing name.

Hope this helps,

Best Regards,


Attachment: Model object
