Object won't disappear


For some reason I have this object which follows my screen on every vectorworks file I've been working on lately. I created the shape a few weeks ago but noticed that it just won't disappear any ideas on why this is happening and how I could get rid of it?

Screenshot attached below, it is located just above my cursor towards the bottom of the page and is light grey.

It looks like a softgoods object. Is it on another layer or perhaps somehow ended up in a symbol you're using? Can you select it? (It looks like it might be outside the group you're working in and I don't think its a class issue given your class option setting.)

Are you saying it moves with your cursor as if you are going to insert it like a symbol?  Is this with all tools or just the Selection tool?


Standard procedure for strange events like this is:


1.  Restart VW.

2.  Restart the computer.

3.  Run VW from a different user account (this if effectively a test for 4).

3.  Delete the preferences.
