Thanks to Miloche for attempting to help. We are actually looking to
unlink, or more appropriately said, remove, all locations from our database
since they were not done consistently. I apologize for the confusion and
for not including screenshots to better explain. I'll try again.

Here's a screenshot of the Instance and Location in ArchivesSpace 1.1.2.
Notice the red circle indicating where you can remove a location from the

However, in 1.4.2 (below), the X button is gone so there's no way to remove
the location element from the Instance.

As Miloche pointed out, I can click on the small x button on the location
itself, which unlinks that specific location, but I actually want to remove
the entire location element. Since I cannot remove it, and it's a required
field, I still have to have something in it in order to save the full
resource. If I could remove the location field, I could then save the
record without entering a new location. I thought maybe the process
changed, but the user manual still indicates that this is the appropriate
way to remove locations from a sub-record:

I hope this was more clear on what I am trying to do. I think it's a bug
but wanted to hear if anyone else has noticed this.
