Cannot remove piano pedal retake

I have several piano retakes on a long pedal line which I cannot remove. I have tried with the edit menu and the popover. I see I can go into Engrave-properties, but is there a reason the other methods are not working?

Welcome to the forum! Are you following these steps? i.e. selecting a note at the retake position? If so, can you share the project (ideally with the “Silence” playback template applied so its file size is smaller) in case there’s something specific?
