I'm using OrientDB 14.0.6.

I had a bunch of edges, and deleted them; I think I used "DELETE" instead of "DELETE EDGE", as a result of which I'm left with a bunch of orphan links pointing to the now-deleted edges (the orphans still retain the name of the edge class).  How do I get rid of these links?

hi,
can you try to go to tab "Graph" (in orientdb studio) to perform the following two queries:
1) select from V -> do run
2) select from E -> do run
What do you see as image?

regards,
Savio L.

When I do that, it doesn't show the orphan edges--but then it also doesn't show unlinked vertexes (which I have a bunch of now, because my efforts to get rid of the old, orphan links deleted some new edges as well, giving me even more orphan links).

I found my answer: 

UPDATE <class> REMOVE in_<edge class>
