There was an Installation or Location name used in the project at one time, but it has since been removed and no devices, pages, or fields use this Installation or Location name any longer. However, the unused name is still showing up in the pull down menus when I assign Device IDs and in the BOM Explorer. How can I remove them so they no longer appear in the project at all?
The Remove Unplaced Devices button was added to the BOM Explorer tab of Project Manager in SELECTseries 7 (08.11.12.xx). It’s main purpose is to remove devices that have no associated symbols placed in the project.

It will also remove all unused Installation and Location names from the project. If you want to remove an Installation name but do not want to remove any as yet unplaced devices from the project, use Option 2.
Select the BOM Explorer tab of the Project Manager. Tabs are along the bottom of Project Manager.
The Remove Unplaced Devices button is near the top of the BOM Tree pane.
