Step-by-step guide: How to delete a library item
When a library item isn't used anymore, it may be removed from the project's library: deleting a library item will remove it from your library thus saving space in your project file.
When you need to remove a library item, there are two easy ways to delete it:
Right-click the item in your library panel that you'd like to
This displays a menu. Click *Delete*.
This displays a window, confirming that you'd like to permanently delete the item. Click *Yes*.
This removes the item from your library panel.
Note: The item will only be deleted from the library, not in the various topics where it's used. A placeholder is inserted for any item that has been removed from the library but remains in your documentation. Therefore, if the name or content of the library item has changed, consider updating it or renaming it instead of removing it.
The library is a central place where reusable items are managed: deleting an item from the library is a fast and easy way to trim it and keep it under control.
