GTOLS affecting features

I have a feature in a sheetmetal part that I need to delete. Pro/e tells me there I cannot because the feature is referenced by a geometric tolerance. I've opened the drawing and deleted the gtol that was attached to it. Still no luck deleting feature. I have cleared and deleted every datum plane in the part. Still no luck. I have shown and deleted every gtol in the drawing that I can find. Still no luck. Does anyone know of a way to globally clear and delete all gtols? Is there a config option that would allow a user to override the Pro/e warning and delete the feature anyway? WF2

Summary:

Thanks to all that replied. Apparently no such config options or functionality exists. The only replies I received were to help locate the suspect gtol. Ultimately, I was able to work around the issue by redefining the feature in a way that causes it to fail. Then in resolve mode I selected the delete option and that took care of it. But I still would like to know what is so sacred about gtols anyway?

Other suggestions that would have worked:

1. Open the model and turn on annotations in the model tree. Gtols appear near the top of the tree.

2. Open the drawing and start typing a note that reads &g1, &g2, &g3,etc. if there are any floating around anywhere this will find it.
