Last updated: Apr 11, 2021
Hello everyone, I'm having an issue with the studio when trying to access one of the posts I have created."The ‘Desk’ tool crashed"
The studio functions perfectly otherwise, only having an issue with one particular post which I don't mind deleting.

Stack trace:

I was editing the schema and adding a custom image type in order to have a field for the alt text. I believe the issue begun after creating and adding that custom image type to the Post. Any suggestions on what I could possibly do?

Hey there! Mind sharing the schema so we can take a look?
Mar 29, 2021, 4:24 PM
Of course.

import createSchema from 'part:@sanity/base/schema-creator'

import schemaTypes from 'all:part:@sanity/base/schema-type'

import blockContent from './blockContent'

import category from './category'

import post from './post'

import author from './author'

import cstmImage from './cstmImage'

import comment from './comment'

export default createSchema({

name: 'default',

types: schemaTypes.concat([

Could you please help me at least delete that post?I tried to do it via queries in Vision on my local sanity studio but it doesn't seem to work.
I'm using the correct id which I fetched by another query so that isn't the problem.
Am I doing something wrong or is this not the way I am supposed to do it?


"mutations": [


"delete": {

"id": "drafts.2f763dc5-aaa5-4c50-8e89-5991fa12118c"

Hi Aniruddha. Mutations can’t be run from Vision so you’d need to do this from the CLI, using the JavaScript (or PHP) client, or the HTTP API. You could use a write token and the command above should work in a program like Insomnia or Postman.

Here’s how you could do it in Insomnia.
1. Create a write token at
manage.sanity.io .2. Create a new POST request in Insomnia.
3. Set the URL to
. For example, it might look like
.4. Paste your code above into the JSON tab.
5. Add your token under the Bearer tab.
6. You
might need to set the Content-Type to application/json under the Header tab.7. Press Send.

To use the CLI, go to your studio directory in your terminal and enter
sanity documents delete drafts.2f763dc5-aaa5-4c50-8e89-5991fa12118c
(that’s a copy-and-paste from your post above, so double-check it’s correct).
