Elements and tags can become orphaned when:
- In the host project, you added an element that was hosted by an element in a linked model. The linked element was later moved or deleted.
- In a host view, you added a tag to an element in a linked model. The linked element was later deleted from the linked model.
NoteTags can also become orphaned as a result of certain functions, such as Mirror, or Cut and Paste. These functions delete the original element and create a copy with a different ID, which can result in an orphaned tag.
You can review these orphaned elements and tags and select new hosts or delete them from the host project.
