Delete elements: Delete elements in memory

Some or all elements of the active structure currently held in memory can be deleted. By default all nodes associated with these elements and not used by other elements are also deleted. However, by selecting option „Keep nodes“ these nodes are kept and may be reused later for element definitions. Nodes, which aren’t used by elements, will be associated with an element of type 1 (node element) and the given group ID, so these nodes are easy to identify. If those nodes are not needed any more, they can easily be selected by clicking button „Node elements“. Button „Apply“ will delete the selected elements.
