Trash bin

The Trash Bin in Valispace is a reference tool that provides visibility into the items that have been deleted from your project. Unlike traditional "trash" or "recycle bin" features, items in the Valispace Trash Bin cannot be restored directly within the application. The primary function of the Trash Bin is to review and keep track of deleted objects for manual restoration if necessary.

Accessing the Trash Bin

  1. Navigation Panel: To locate the settings icon on your Valispace, please look for it on the lower left-hand side of the screen.

  2. Trash Bin: In the settings menu, select the ‘Trash Bin' option. The provided screenshot illustrates where the Trash Bin is located in the Valispace’s settings.
