Answer

There are situations where we can get features in the model that are invalid or are overlapping an existing one. To find them we use the Audit command. The result list will contain the object handle ID and a message highlighting the issue with it, as in the following example:

How is a feature, identified by an Audit that cannot be processed / deleted, found

To find the object reference perform the following steps:

1. Go to the Listing and Checking Toolbar.

2. Select and hold down the Clash Check Icon and select the fourth Icon - Mark Object.

3. On the Command Line you will be asked to choose either Handle / ID - Type H (to select Handle).

4. Type the Handle reference - e.g. AC9B

5. This marks the object with the problematic feature.

6. From the Standard Toolbar select "Search for Marked Objects".

7. Using the handle information from the Audit report we will find the object containing the invalid feature, and not the feature itself. After we have identified the object, we will need to manually check the object and search for the actual feature based on the Audit report detail and remove it.
