First off sorry for the English, I use Google Translate ..
So:
I'm building a public map and she has a leak.
The problem is that the Entity is the leak, and I can not run the map until I delete all of the Entity.
I do not know why, but the Hammer Editor see the Entity as a leak
And please please write your comments good understood English?
Thank you!

I have read the FAQ .. It does not help me.
It does not show how to fix a leaky Entity .. Am I right? If not, please directed me!

The entity is not the problem. It is a misleading error message.

The entity is just a reference point. It means: starting from that entity, there is a path to the outside.

I did not get an problem that the entity is the source of the leak, I deduced it from the compiler. Every time I delete an entity which is considered a leak, a new entity has become a new place. I scanned the map and you can not find the leak .. You may want to see the map or the compiler log?

Error:
A LEAK is a hole in the map, where the inside of it is exposed to the
(unwanted) outside region. The entity listed in the error is just a helpful
indication of where the beginning of the leak pointfile starts, so the
beginning of the line can be quickly found and traced to until reaching the
outside. Unless this entity is accidentally on the outside of the map, it
probably should not be deleted. Some complex rotating objects entities need
their origins outside the map. To deal with these, just enclose the origin
brush with a solid world brush

save your map first just encase you don't mess stuff up.

alt + p (checks for problems)
fix all problems
compile
see if it does
then do what you need to do to your map to what you want
alt + p
fix all possible problems (if there is any)
compile
see what it does

When I do the test for the problems, It is not fixes them. another bug Hammer ..
It tells me it fixed but the problems are still there and nothing happens. How would that be?

There will be some small hole somewhere, that's the issue. The reason the entity changed when you deleted the offending one is because it gives you the name of the first one it "reached"; it's a little complicated but it will find one entity then stop. So, as we suggest, use the pointfile. If there are lots of lines, then, well, you'll have a lot of searching to do, but that's your option.

OK .. Thank you!
Is there anything I can do to reduce the amount of the lines?
Is there any way to help me find the leak in less difficulty? Tip or software?

And then I ran it. The leak suddenly gone ..
What does it mean?

A leak is when a entity is touching the outside (not inside a box). If you don't have any entities, no leak. That's the reason why you can use blocks to make the beerbox.
Today's post brought to you by the letter: "heck".

For future reference, if you really cannot find a leak, you can use a binary search to find it.

Place a giant brush to block out half of your map, making it completely solid. Then compile and see if it leaks or not. Whatever happens, you'll know which half of the map has the leak.

You can repeat this process until you only have a small area left which must contain the leak.

Caveat: It is possible, although unlikely, that when you divide the map in half, you also divide the leak in half. This could cause both halves to leak, or neither, depending on the geometry.

Also it is possible there are multiple leaks.
