Deleting from category

Postby sorenhou » 2014-01-28 13:30

When in a category could pressing delete result in a pop-up window asking if you want to delete the reference from the category or the entire database.
I have on occasion deleted a reference that should just have been removed from a category, and there after have no memory of what reference it was.

Thanks very much for your suggestion! Are you using the fourth-column view in the Reference Editor? If so, if you delete a reference from the navigation list you are right that it is permanently deleted rather than being removed from the category. It's currently best to remove a reference from a category by deleting the category on the Context tab:

I can see how it's confusing that deleting a reference in this view removes it from the project instead of from the category, and I'll add your suggestion to our wish list for new features.

Thanks again!

Best regards,
