Task #10327 (new)
Bug: Very easy to lose data permenantly when deleting multiply-linked objects
|Reported by:||rleigh||Owned by:||jburel|
See attached screenshot.
In this case, I have a plate linked to two screens. If I choose to delete the plate from one screen, it is not made clear that it will be deleted from both. How do I delete a plate from a single screen only? "Cut" appears to do this, but normally this action only takes place after the corresponding paste (e.g. file managers, excel), and there's nowhere to paste it /to/, leading to some confusion over whether it was or was not unlinked.
It would be a bit less dangerous if the delete dialogue warned the user if it was present in multiple screens, and perhaps added an additional checkbox "Delete from all screens" which defaulted to off, so that by default the action would affect just the screen being operated on, rather than all screens.
This also applies to project/dataset as well, and potentially other places.
