Description sbooth 2005-09-27 11:32:33 UTC
If I insert an existing document as new section and select isnert "as link"
then the new section is quite sensibly read-only. However I can't find an
obvious way to delete the entire section once its been inserted

Currently Writer is not designed to also delete the whole content of a Section.
It is possible to romove the section via Format.Section dialog and then remove
the content manually from the document.
It should be possible to do this in one step.
