Deleting Story Levels and Level Types

Recommended Posts

Hi all. How do I delete custom story levels for a particular story? When I edit the value of a story level a new one is created in the list and I'm not able to delete the old one.

Also, how do I delete Level Types? There is no option in the Edit Story Level dialogue box.

My concern is that my file is filling up with unused levels and level types as my model develops.

This is covered fairly carefully in the Level, Layers, Stories tutorial...

Here's the short answer...

Do this:

Under the Design Layers tab, choose Level Types…at the bottom of the pane.

Choose all of them, choose Delete

Go to the Stories tab, choose Default Story Levels…at the bottom of the pane

Choose all of them, choose Delete

You now have a file with NO default Story Levels, save it as a template file.

You can also eliminate selected ones with the same methodology

Hi All,


As an update to the post above, in 2019, the Level Types button was moved FROM the Design Layers tab TO the Stories tab.  The functionality remains unchanged.  You'll still need to blow the info away in the two places in the sequence described above IF you want a TOTALLY blank file. See image below.   Save it as a Template if desired...
