Deleting Components from Component List

Running current version of 2022 Pro on Mac. I am unable to delete components from my model vai the component list. I pull up and select specific components but the ‘Delete’ command is grayed out and unselectable. Couldn’t find the answer on other posts. What am I missing here?

When I want a component to disappear, I make sure it is not used anywhere and just purge the file. Unused components go away when you purge.

The Delete command you are seeing would only delete components that are in the model space. I gather you want to get rid of unused components. As Royce suggests, purging unused components would be the right thing. There’s a button to the right of the dropdown list in the Components panel that opens the Details menu. Do that and click on Purge Unused. Or better, do it from Window>Model Info>Statistics because that will also delete any unused materials at the same time.

Please update your profile. It still says you are using SU2020.
