Check and make sure your delete key is not broken. Delete Key is Dead: Fixing Delete Key

Re: cannot delete feature in solidworks, only can suppress

When you say "suppress" do you really mean "hide"?

 

Because if your freeze bar is active and the feature is frozen, then you can't delete it, you can only hide it.

 

If this is the case, just slide the yellow bar above the feature, then delete it.

The problem have not solved.

1. I can not delete feature in parts file.

2. I cannot delete component in assembly.

 

I only can suppress the feature and component. I check my delete key is working on delete line in sketch.

Does "Delete" appear when you right-click on the feature?

The last time Rob logged in was last July so I thought I'd answer.

When Rob was trying to delete a feature he had a sketch open. Make sure you're not in an active sketch.

Hope this helps.

Re: cannot delete feature in solidworks, only can suppress

oh okay, well the problem i am having is when the sketch is closed and i have a created part i am trying to delete a sketch that i accidentally made but it will not let me. the delete key is not broken and when i RMB it there is a option for delete however is will not let me delete it. it computer makes the error noise when ever i press any button after until i hit escape. i have opened a new part and made a sketch then tried to delete it as well and it does the exact same thing. any help would be amazing as this is really messing up my workflow.

Please post the Part here so we can take a look (How can I attach a file to a forum post?).

Re: cannot delete feature in solidworks, only can suppress

under my current N.D.A. i am not able to post the part i am having issues with. i think i may have it figured out. i think it was just a glitch as i restarted my comp right now and it is now not doing it. if i do have the issue come up again today while working i will be sure to make a new part i am able to post and show you all. but i do appreciate the responses thank you all

Re: cannot delete feature in solidworks, only can suppress

If you can ever produce this behavior in a Part that you can post please do so.

 

Something just occurred to me.  I don't know if someone else has mentioned this, but if you use an Assembly feature, such as the Hole Wizard, and choose the option to propagate the feature to the Part, then the feature will show up in the Part tree, but can't be deleted from the Part.  It can only be deleted or edited from within the Assembly.  I don't suppose that's the case with you, or the OP?

Re: cannot delete feature in solidworks, only can suppress

no it is not. it was a single part no assembly. the part is something super easy that turned into a nightmare because i messed up on one sketch and needed to delete it but it wouldnt let me
