Default Multiple edge delete?

Hi again. Got another issue. I have just tried converting my poly fuselage on my plane to sub-ds, and I'm getting an error that I cannot convert due to multiple duplicate edges.

I have a bunch according to the highlights when using the Merge Edge Tool, but using it causes adjacent edges to attach to where the tool was clicked. I've tried all 3 settings in the Merge Tool but they each give undesirable results.

Is there a way to get rid of the multiple edges without hurting the integrity of the mesh?

Hmm, try Edit Polygons > Delete Edge.

Tried that, but all of them said "Cannot delete border edges".

I just fixed it. Looked in the Script Editor and it told me to run this command on all the polys:

select .e[949] ;string $v[] = `polyListComponentConversion -fe -tv`;select $v;polySplitVertex;polyMergeVertex -d 0.0 -tx 1;

Hope this helps someone. Mesh converts to Subs no prob now.
