Hi all.  I'm trying to delete a symbol from my favorites in ArcGIS Pro.  I've attached several jpegs of the 'valve' symbol that I want to delete.  It's really simple to add one to your styles, but not so easy to remove.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks

Link to ArcGIS Pro help on how to remove the symbol.  Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me.

The way to delete a point symbol from your Favorites is go to the View core tab->Catalog View and then select Favorites from the Styles folder in the Catalog Pane.  The Home tab for the Catalog View can be adjusted to only show point symbols (by default it is).  Select the point to delete, right-click and select Delete.  Gone - poof!

Be aware that you may be prevented from deleting layers if the deletion will violate the minimum core symbol layers. A point symbol must contain at least one marker symbol layer. A line symbol must contain at least one stroke symbol layer, and a polygon symbol must contain at least one layer of any type.

Which almost makes it sound like you can't delete a point symbol unless you have more than one to delete.... strange
