Deleting Logical Links

When deleting a Logical Link, a dialog should pop up asking if you want to delete just that instance of the object, or all copies of the object.

Response from Kevin at Kinook:

"Right now you can delete all instances of an Info Item (and child Info Items) is available with by holding Shift + Ctrl when doing a delete (the prompt indicates that a well). That feature needs to be documented better in the help file. Receiving a dialog everytime an Info Item is deleted might get annoying as well. Perhaps a user configurable feature in the future..."

My response to this:

"It wouldn't have to give you the dialog for every item...only for items that have logical links elsewhere in the tree. It makes sense to warn a user if he may unknowingly be deleting multiple items. Conversely, requiring the user to use Shift + Ctrl makes the assumption that the user knows there are logical links to the item. When you have a few thousand items in your Data Explorer, it becomes very easy to lose track of which items have links and which ones don't. Therefore, I think the warning dialog should automatically popup any time you are deleting an item that has logical links. Then the user can make an informed choice about how to proceed."

Good suggestion. Also, a shortcut overlay image (a little square w/ an arrow at the bottom left) is displayed on the item icon for any items that are multiply linked (in addition to the parents being displayed in the Item Parents pane).
