Cannot select an Object that somehow is very far from PCB boundary

Created: March 25, 2021 | Updated: August 12, 2021

There appears to be objects outside of my workspace area, I am not able to find nor select them. How can I select them to delete. No matter what I do, it will not be selected.

Starting in Version: 18.0
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

Try this method to select and delete objects outside your board area:

1. Go to Edit ► Select ► Outside Area.
2. Make sure that the area you place around your board is as close as possible.
3. Open the PCB List panel.
4. Make sure that the panel is set to selected objects and all types of objects

5. You should only see the objects outside of the board listed in the panel, use Edit ► Delete.
