Atom Remove

Indicate how to remove an atom (or list of atoms, previously selected with Atom->Select, when Global is pressed).


When the Scope is All, the atom and all its contents is removed. This is the default. When an atom used to define an atomic plane or direction is removed, the plane or direction is automatically removed.

When the Scope is Container, the atom is removed but its contents (orbitals, texts) is saved, linked to the atom parent. Atom bonds are removed because they cannot live without the atom.

When the Scope is Contents, the atom is preserved but all its contents (bonds, orbitals, texts) is removed.

When the Scope is Bond, Orbital or Text, these objects are removed from the atom.

When the removed atom was part of the current object, the current layer becomes the new current object.

Clicking the mouse over an atom in the current layer, its identification is transported to the dialog and Ok is automatically pressed. To recover the previous state press Undo.
