Dear Thomas,

I would like to suggest an extension to edit the structure array (presented after the generation of an evolutionary library); to delete selected entries by single press of the delete key.

While browsing an EL (attached), I noticed a few entries either with a `&1` as place holder for (R)/(S) on stereochemical centres, or «crossed double bonds» to indicate an unassigned/flexible (E)/(Z) configuration. For small test down the road, my intent was to select these records (left mouse click) -- eventually multiple (left mouse click while holding the Ctrl key) -- and to remove them.


At present, this is possible by the subsequent Data -> Delete Rows [sic!] -> Selected Rows. This approach works to remove only the selected entries (thankfully: only the ones identified, and not the whole row of the entries). My suggestion is to offer a remove of the entries already marked by single press of the delete button as a shorter one.

The pulldown menu available for the array (right mouse button click on a cell) includes an entry «edit», but no delete. If the suggested functionality were provided here, it would again request a journey of three mouse clicks instead of a single key action. To change to the tab «table», to select whole rows then deleted is possible though this display does not offer as much a synopsis of the structures in question as does the tab «structures».

The observation refers to DW for Linux in version 05.06.00 by September 22nd.
