OpenStudio Sketchup Inspector, new-copy-delete buttons grayed?

I would like to delete the erroneous "Surface 171," which cannot be rendered,* using the "Select Object" sub-window within the OpenStudio Inspector in Sketchup. However, the "delete" button seems to be grayed out. Is this the incorrect method for deleting this surface? How is it meant to be deleted from within the Sketchup GUI? Could we please add this ability? Screenshot cannot be attached because I need >10 points. Thanks

'* In response to the following error produced upon loading the OSM model into Sketchup, I am trying to delete Surface 171:

Error: Surface 171 This planar surface shares the same SketchUp face as Surface 104. This error cannot be automatically fixed. The surface will not be drawn.
