PEN Quick Start - Deleting Objects

by Rachelle Howell, Ian Mathew

Deleting Objects from the Project Warehouse

In order to delete an object from the Project Warehouse via PEN, you must first delete all of the files in that object.

To delete an object, select it in the left panel, right click, and select “Delete” from the menu. PEN will expand the object, looking for files that may remain in the object. If any files are encountered, the deletion will fail. Files can exist locally (blue files), but they cannot exist in the Project Warehouse (black files).

Objects deleted from the Project Warehouse will turn blue, meaning they still exist locally and can be re-uploaded if needed. If you want to completely delete the object, you will need to do so in two steps. Delete it from the Project Warehouse first, and then delete the local copy (select, right click, “Delete Local).
