  • $\begingroup$ You have two edges selected, which do you want to remove? Normally I'd say make sure only that one is selected, then press Delete > Edges or Delete > Dissolve Edges. Does this not work? $\endgroup$ – VRM Jan 24 '15 at 21:02
  • $\begingroup$ the orange one isn't selected, just looks it. it needs to be deleted. $\endgroup$ – Aidan Pallian Jan 24 '15 at 21:04

    $\begingroup$ I think the orange edge is a separate object. switch to edit-mode and try again. $\endgroup$ – Scalia Jan 24 '15 at 21:24

The edge is a separate object from the rest of the mesh; it appears orange because it was also selected when you entered edit-mode. Tab into object mode, deselect the main object so that the only object selected is the mystery edge, and delete. (X or Delete)


I just had this exact same thing happen to me.. I had to go back into object mode, and then into edit mode in order to select it..
