I've been making a ship for a while, but somehow I found that a few sections are actually out of the grid area... How can I remove these? They're bloating my ship's size by a few dozen times and fracking everything up.

A picture of the problem usually helps. If I understand correctly, then the simplest solution is to add a dummy section of sorts, reparent all the problem sections to it, then delete it.

Also, in my experience, this problem usually comes from an error in the "hide" function. If you watch that carefully, you may be able to avoid it entirely in the future.

kiltric said the easiest solution, use the "reparent children" option in the right click menu to parent the sections to the dummy part. You can also disect the shipmaker file in notepad, but that takes a little more time and effort.
