Flushing out datum names used by deleted features

Hi

Does anyone recall how to flush out a datum name that was given to an axis
in a hole that was deleted from a feature that included several holes. When
we try to give another axis that same datum name we get the error message
"Name Already Exists".

Widlfire 2.0 M080

Thanks
Doug

Hello

I got couple of responses on this, both suggesting to use the binoculars to
search for the axis. Problem is, the axis is gone, so searching finds
nothing. Turns out there's an SPR (1134871) for this problem (reported in
Wildfire but without a resolved release yet). The recommendation I got was
to not use a feature axis (for GTOL datums in our case) but create an axis
just for that purpose so if it needs to be redefined or deleted the name
will be re-usable.

Cheers
Doug
