PowerDesigner not removing deleted columns when reverse engineering from live database

I have been using PowerDesigner to reverse engineer from a live database and it has been maintaining the tables in the model correctly, but for some reason it is no longer removing columns from the model that have been removed from the database. I've been using default settings but maybe they have been modified. Where is the option to remove columns from the model when they have been removed from the database when I select "Update Model From Database"? Thanks.

    Did you see merge window show up?

    That is the place to remove column

      I do see the option in the Merge window, but I have to manually walk through each change to set it to delete that column. Is there a way I can get it to remove deleted fields by default? It is a lot of work to walk through every single table and every field....
