Thanks for supporting!

I do have concerns when it comes to destructive functions. Though undo works (hopefully) well after, for example, clicking Delete Chapter at the context menu. But you may unintentionally click it and forget to restore. 

But that's just one opinion. More input please.

Look at the MS Word! It works very well.

Hi All,

Here is patch that adds the ability to delete chapters in Navigator through the  content context menu, Headings sub menu, Delete menu item.


Testing and code review appreciated.
