I am now using components a lot more than I used to before. Sometimes I create a component and give it a name and then wind up deleting it for some reason. Then I recreate a new component the way I want it to be and I can’t name it the old component name even though a dialogue box pops out and warns me about the existence of that component and asks me if I want to overwrite it or something like that. It never names my component and I have to choose another name. What puzzles me is that the original component is not in the model since I deleted it.
This tells me that even though I delete a component, somehow the program has a ghost of it somewhere. So my question today is how can I find these ghosts and clean them up, or why does the program think they are still there if I have deleted them?
What is the best way of using one component to make another, similar component out of?
Thanks in advance.
