When deleting a palette I see that the instances/markup of that palette are not removed but instead they are converted to the default Highlighting (yellow background). (example below)

This is not what I expected to occur when I deleted the palette. I expected that all of the instances of that palette would be removed (erased).

The problem that I now have is that to remove these (I can no longer hide them from the visual filters selection drop down) I have to select them all and delete them and if there are additional Highlighting instances, from other palettes, (example below) they will have to be recreated.

It would be great if there was something that I was missing and would be glad if someone could show me how to delete a palette and all associated Highlighting instances. My guess is that this is not possible. If so, I would like to suggest that if a palette is deleted that all associated markup from that palette is removed/erased without removing additional markup from other palettes.

And/Or a suggestion that when trying to erase markup the only erased markup is that markup which is currently visible - (palettes activated/checked in the visual filters drop down list)

Or better still, a dialog that asks how you whether you want (a) all the highlighting to be removed, (b) all the highlighting to be changed to a different highlight, or (c) cancel
