Deleting Boats / Colored Marks

Is it possible to delete more than 1 boat at a time from the tracking schedule? 

I can select more than 1 boat.  But the delete key still only removes one.

Is it possible to change the color of a mark?

It seems you can only delete one boat. That is easy to change.

Mark colours are fixed.

it's easy to edit the boat and sched tables in MS Access 
I usually just start with empty tables for each race

If you're talking about the Sail Tab/Boat List
Click 1st Boat number
Hold Shift down click last boat number
Click Delete
When the Delete Warning Window pops up with Yes hi-litHold down the Enter key

Re: Deleting Boats / Colored Marks

ok.  Now a related question.  (Don't laugh) Is there a way to reload all the tracking schedules I just deleted as well.  I thought I could reload the boat ids and the tracks would stay.  But all is now gone.  All of the position reports are in the data directory but when I go to import them I just get a "Unable to open boat id file" error.

That is why I have tried to avoid having functions to delete database items. The position reports are all linked to the database boats.

​If you have Exp archiving settings, previous versions of the selected database should be saved to the Archive folder.
