Removing Orphaned Craft Hotspots

I used the Craft plugin to setup many hotspots on static design elements. Recently I setup a symbol to replace the static design elements. I deleted the static elements across several artboards, replacing them with the new symbol. I expected the Craft hotspots to automatically delete when I removed the static design elements. Counterintuitively, the hotspots remained and were orphaned. These orphaned hotspots appear purple, rather than blue. I cannot select them in order to remove them. Copying and pasting the artboards to a new canvas, uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin also fails to remove these orphaned hotspots. Please help!

After some digging around, experimentation, and consulting with a fellow designer I found a solution. The video linked below demonstrates the fix that worked for me. Hope it helps others. Cheers!

I am having this same problem. The solution with the dropbox link goes to a 404 page. Can you please send a new link or write a post with the solution?

Hi Megan,

If you have updated to the latest version of Craft Manager, you can quickly bulk delete hotspots created with Craft Prototype by following the step by step instructions here. If you continue to have issues after using these steps, or are encountering a completely separate issue, please let me know.

Hope this helps,

Shaina

Hi Shaina,

Unfortunately the video you have suggested does not resolve this issue. I have the purple arrow problem, I have highlighted the layer and tried to remove manually and by the menu too and neither work.

The only way round this seems to be deleting the artboard itself, but i dont want to do this as there a many protoype arrows coming off of that particular artboard

All the best

Phil

Hey Phil,

Sorry for the frustration here. Are you able to post a video of what's happening when you try to follow the instructions? Also, let me know which version of Craft you're using.
