The selected component is deleted. If the Meridian view is selected, the <Del> key on the keyboard can be used alternatively.


A component color can be selected from 15 predefined colors.
The color is used left in the components list and in the Meridian view. Furthermore it's used for text color in the report, the 3D model tree and the export window.
