How to delete SmartArt only in Excel?
Supposing you have inserted multiple objects in a worksheet, such as pictures, charts, auto shapes, smart arts, and now you just want to remove all Smart Arts, how can you do?
If there are only Smart Arts in your worksheet, you can use Go To Special function to quickly select all Smart Arts, then press Delete key to remove them.
1. Enable the worksheet you want to delete Smart Arts, and then click Home > Find & Select > Go To Special. See screenshot:
2. Then in the Go To Special dialog, check Objects option. See screenshot:
3. Click OK. Now all the Smart Arts are selected, and press Delete key to delete them.
