Issue with deleted control numbers

Posted by Colin Drury, SYO 
Finn, I’ve used Condes several times but have a problem which has never occurred before. I’ve deleted a few controls from my early drafts & wish to re-use the control numbers but when I try to, it says the number is in uses. The number appears on the All Controls spreadsheet & on the All Controls control descriptions but not on the list on the left hand side of the programme so I can’t find it to re-delete it.

It is possible that I started planning the courses on Condes 8 about a year ago but I cannot recall & have certainly used Condes 9 for some time.

Advice please. (Can't attach file as event is in a few weeks)

Hi Colin,

Is it possible that the controls in question are in use on a different canvas which uses "separate" controls? If this is the case, Condes will warn you that the control already exists and that you can add it to the current canvas.

If this is not the case, could you e-mail me a copy of the event file and I will look into this.
