    Cannot not delete a free via Reply

    Hi all,

     I've run across an annoying little problem here.  I'm using an older version of Orcad Layout Plus, 10.3.  I've made some changes to my netlist, and when I went in to Layout to make the PCB changes I found a free via that was once connected to GND, but the interesting thing is I cannot delete it, or select it with any tool (Pin tool, component, routing).  

     Even after noting the coordinates of the via, I cannot find it anywhere in the component list to delete it.  But if I draw an obstacle around it, OrCad give it clearance, so it sees the via.

     Any advice on this one, has anyone seen this before?

    Try to remove the fixed property... (if it is the case)

    It is the same on PCB Editor when the via has the fixed property attached.

    Regards,

    Enrique.
