Removing an Entity

To remove an Entity altogether navigate to the Entity library and select the ‘Delete’ button to the far right of the Entity you wish to remove. You will be asked ‘Are you sure?’ Confirming will move it to the Trash can.

Do think carefully before deleting an Entity. You’ll want to double check it’s redundant and definitely not being used anywhere any more, otherwise you might end up with unsightly gaps in your work.

Be aware that if you delete an Entity that is still present in your prose it will be removed and replaced with a blank space when you publish to .epub or display the insert Entity command code in the Chapter viewer (ie. {{Mikey.Haircolour}}) which will be highlighted in red.

To check to see if an Entity is in use Storytella provides you with a handy list of all the Books and Chapters where each Entity is used within the Entity viewer. Before you amend or delete anything you can use this as a reference guide to check which Entities are in use and where.
