Cannot delete unwanted layouts

Post by Andy Dowse » 10 Aug 2018, 06:00

I have a constant problem whereby I can't delete unwanted layouts in my HTML publications. Whenever I ctrl click on a layout tab, the delete option is greyed out and unavailable. I always make sure the layout isn't being used anywhere such as a web view panel. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I am going wrong.

Hi Andy,

have you maybe checked "Share" in Advanced Layout Properties?

Thanks
Matthias

Hi Matthias

No, 'Share' isn't checked in the Advanced Layout Properties for any of the layouts.

Regards
Andy

Hi Andy,
1. Open Content Palette
2. Delete the entries appearing in that Palette
3. Save Project. Close and Reopen the Project.
Thanks

Been having the same problem. Nothing in Content. Only thing that has worked is deleting the pages in the page layout window so that only one left. Save and then delete layout.
