Direction Remove

Indicate how to remove a direction (or list of directions, previously selected with Direction->Select, when Global is pressed).


When the Scope is All, the direction and all its contents is removed. This is the default.

When the Scope is Container, the direction is removed but its contents (atoms, bonds, orbitals, texts) is saved, linked to the direction parent.

When the Scope is Contents, the direction is preserved but all its contents (atoms, bonds, orbitals, texts) is removed. Atomic directions are removed because they cannot live without the defining atoms.

When the Scope is atom, bond, orbital or text, these objects are removed from the direction. When an atom used to define an atomic direction is removed, the direction is automatically removed.

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

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