"Do You REALLY Want to Delete This"

Is it possible to do away with this offensive phrase in a professional application like Global Mapper? I have to delete many, many items from the shapefiles I work with and seeing that dialog over and over is taxing.

If the dialog can't be permanently deleted, could we not have a check box "Don't show this dialog again"?

Besides, nothing is ever deleted anyway, "deleted" items are simply marked and put in a special layer.

    I decided to just go ahead and remove the "Are you sure you want to delete" prompt from the search vector dialog since you get a tip until you turn it off. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v11.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit v11 version there is a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Such a relief, Thank you. :)

    Well, Thor has headed east, should be over Parker in two-hours. With any luck it'll rain out the Rockies so that they can't lose a 9th in a row.
