Batch-deleting missing external references from a sketch?

edward_panedward_pan Member Posts: 8
It happens often that after I edit something on which some external references for a later sketch exist, the sketch goes red.
I know this doesn't really affect the features next in line and all I have to do is to delete those missing constraints, but sometimes a sketch uses many external references and I have to delete them one by one because those don't seem to be multi-selectable.

I think it would be great to be able to delete those all at once.

    I'd vote for this.

    Does the transform command work to correct the issue? It is not a workflow that I use much but the transform command in the sketch breaks all constraints, maybe that would not have the effect you are looking for.

    Yes, it is a useful approach.!
