Make it possible to delete hits from measured features from within the hits dialog

Like the title.

I use measured features a lot (placing hits with mouse/joystick) especially on surfaces/planes.

I have found it quite cumbersome to delete a certain hit from the feature, as you first need to

"find" the hit - either in the command or by using the "hits" dialog for measured features:

After that, you will need to find the actual hit in the command and remove it.

Then, repeat the procedure until all the hits you want to remove are gone.

I would like to have the possibility to multi-select the points I want to remove

through the dialog shown in the image.

What version are you running?  I can't find that window.

Measure Dialog window

Example: Measured Point

Select Hit Targets

Example: Within the Feature Hit Targets dialog window double left mouse click the hit feature #1: 0,0,0,0,0,1

will open the Measured Hits dialog window. Within the Measured Hits dialog window you can change the Hit Type. Corner and Angle I have had issues within the past. The Surface Hit Type is an alternative too the Surface Point Auto feature.

I look back at this Feature Hit Targets Dialog Window in the 3.6 manual to find a Delete Hit button. Nice, there was a delete button for this dialog window.

From the pcdmisv36OnePDF Chapter 15 Page 639:

I just had to look back and find this missing delete button. I remember using this button when I was using v3.6. Not sure when this button was removed.

Thanks, Dave!

Well, actually it is still possible to delete hits by simply hitting the <delete> button on the keyboard, but I would like to be able to multi-select (CTRL + leftclick) in the hits list to select several hits for deletion. As they get marked in the list, they should also be marked in the graphics view (like current state).
