Properties from outer space

In Dxdesigner/PADS 9.2  I've got a component with a whole bunch of "non-common properties" that I can't get rid of. These properties don't exist on the symbol when I look at it in Symbol Editor.   I tried editting the library symbol and then updating the schematic symbol, but that didn't work.  I tried saving the library symbol with a new name and loading the new symbol, but it STILL has all the non-common properties. I tried deleting the symbol from the local symbols, and that didn't work.  I CAN'T GET RID OF THEM!  WHERE ARE THEY COMING FROM? WHY WON'T THEY LEAVE ME ALONE?  How can these properties not exist on the symbol in the library, but get added when I place them on a schematic?


Among the properties I'm seeing are SPICE_MODEL, SPICE_PAR1/2, VOLTAGE RATING (not to be confused with VOLTAGE, which IS a normal property). I can't even delete them on individual symbols in the schematic.
