Object limit still reached after deleting fields

Hello everyone,

i recently reached the 500 custom field limit on one of my custom objects.
We were able to remove about 90 fields that were no longer being used and i have moved those fields to another object and moved the data to the new object

even though i have deleted all 90 fields through the object manager, i am still being told i have 500 of 500 custom fields used

My only idea is that these fields are being held in some sort of limbo state in the trash can (It said that i have 15 days to UNdelete the fields...) Do i just have to wait the 15 days for it to delete or do i need to do something else to finalize these deletes?

You have to permanently delete the fields.
Scroll to the bottom of the custom field list and you will see the deleted fields listed there. You have to erase them completely.
