So my favorite obsession, helplines, have developed a new wrinkle. I do a delete all using the helpline manager but it just looks like they are gone:). As soon as I try to offset/edit a line that is drawn on top of a former helpline the helpline resurfaces and no more editing to be done. Only way I can get rid of the helpline then is to close the file and re-open - kinda slows things down. I have learned never to delete a helpline directly as that is likely to precipitate a crash...

I use the following command line alias to delete help lines.

[d]
comment=delete Helplines
alias=^:^S4^F1^F5^3026#^3022#^

3022# Save File
3026# Regen Display List

The key is to save the file and regen "U" the display to get rid of those ghost helplines.
