Material removal

How do I remove materials

Here’s the scenario - I have a blend going and used some “images as planes”
Then I changed my mind and used a different image
but the old image is still in the materials list
I have a blend where I did this numerous times (I changes my mind alot)
any help would be useful thanks


click on the number to make it disappear
click on the X while pressing Shift
save your project. close and reopen blender

Ok…mine looked nothing like that…
So how come it worked…LOL
Thanks

If there’s no objects using the material, and it hasn’t been set to save the data block with no users (The F toggle) then it should delete itself after restarting Blender.

This will duplicate the material into it’s own unique data block, even if you delete this one the original will remain.

click on the X while pressing Shift
save your project. close and reopen blender

This is correct
