Somehow, Introduced a mounting hole, WAY-WAY off the PCB OUTLINE area. I can't find it therefore I can't delete it. I know it exist, when I go to gerber and use gerber view, I have a npth about 50 inches above my PCB. I looked in the .json file,  "dangerous -- I am not a programmer"  --- I think I see it. ![image.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/q5HqFKoQlq3ZFHU77vVZL7sk5Qy49uz8dM2kUJRr.png) ID gge924 is my npth hole, I can't delete.       notice the Y coordinate in the .json is really small 100 where stuff in PCB oultine is in the area of 5 million.   So back to my question, how do I delete it ? I could just edit the .json file,   but then how do I read that back into EasyEDA ??? Thanks for any help ;

Well, I downloaded the .json file, edit it by removing the reference to gge224 and then "open easyeda" which let me bring in the .json file. it worked....   not sure what I may have broke,  but it worked ... Thanks

@gdc14910, Good effort at finding a way to locate and delete the hole. This is one of the reasons we recommend that any component that is on - or forms an integral part of - the PCB is placed as a symbol in the schematic with a suitable footprint assigned to it. Then when you create the PCB the footprint for the hole is pulled in to the PCB. If you misplace it you can either find it by cross-probing it from the schematic or directly by clicking on it in the PCB Design Manager. For a lot more about this please see (2.2), (2.3), (4) and (6) in: [https://easyeda\.com/andyfierman/Welcome\_to\_EasyEDA\-31e1288f882e49e582699b8eb7fe9b1f](https://easyeda.com/andyfierman/Welcome_to_EasyEDA-31e1288f882e49e582699b8eb7fe9b1f) Another way to help find it would be to do a zoom to fit (K key) then select one of the other mounting holes (or temporarily add and select a new, dummy hole), then right click and select **Find Similar Objects...** ![image.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/503Ni1sladqVQa4FrQQMXwq5J5ZjFBxoLbDjKK4g.png) This will then highlight all the holes (you can move the **Find Similar Objects** panel out of the way or select Cancel to close it and the holes will stay highlighted).
