You can delete a slot so that it is no longer part of the knowledge base. Deleting a slot cannot be undone. You may wish to save or archive your project before deleting slots.

Deleting a Single Slot

To delete a single slot:

  1. In the Slots tab, highlight the slot which you want to remove.

  2. Click the Delete Slot (slots_slot.delete) button or click the right mouse button and select Delete selected slots from the Slot menu.

    Slot menu, "Delete Slot" selected

    The slot will no longer appear in the list of slots. It will also be removed from any classes where it appears.

Deleting Multiple Slots

To delete several slots at once:

  1. In the Slots tab, highlight the slots you wish to remove. To highlight multiple slots, hold down the Ctrl (Cmd) key while clicking each slot. To highlight a range of slots, click the first slot, then hold down the Shift key and click the last slot in the range.

  2. Click the Delete Slot (slots_slot.delete) button. The slots will no longer appear in the list of slots and will be deleted from any classes where they appear.

You can also remove a slot from a class where it appears without deleting it from the project. See Removing a Slot for more information.
