Deleting product library components

When you are working with the product library, you may find that you need to delete some components to accommodate your production environment. Based on the component in the product library you delete, the selected level and all levels below it (dependents) are removed as well. For example, if you are no longer working with a particular map series and delete it, the dependents—the products, instances, and areas of interest within it—are deleted as well.

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. If necessary, open the Product Library window by clicking Customize > Production > Product Library on the main menu.

    A tree view of the product library appears.
