Objects of the same type need to have unique names, I expect that is what you are seeing. As an example if you have a space type named "office" you can't make another space type with that same name. this is also true for any other object type like surfaces, spaces, etc. You are allowed to use the same name for objects of different types, such as a space named "office" and a space type named "office" however I generally try to avoid that to avoid confusion.

Hi David and Julien Thank you for the reply, I just check the space type I created; in the model they are unique, but I did rename the space type based on space name which might cause this problem; when I change the space type to the name other than the space name, the number can be deleted. So I can't name the objects using the same name even if they are in different category
