Deleting Opening Geometry

The Geometric Construction Explorer is best used to delete opening geometry when the Advanced Openings ribbon is open and before openings are created. In this way, you can create geometry for multiple openings, delete geometry as needed, and then create all of the openings at one time by clicking Finish on the main Openings ribbon.
