Eliminate accidental delete

In the drop down menu, when clicking on items in the feature tree near the bottom of the screen, the DELETE function is at the bottom of the menu. It is in a location that can accidentally be triggered by an inadvertent mouse click. (happens to me more often than not)

Don't know if others have had this problem.

It would be nice to have a BLANK space just below the DELETE to avoid accidentally deleting something and not realizing it.

    @gerald_friedman We have seen some users hit this issue when they are on very small screens but we have done a few changes to avoid this but under a certain size of screen this is hard to avoid.

    I have a large iMac screen and have been having more and more instances where an accidental delete has occurred.

    Are you sure a blank space can't be added to the bottom of the menu?

    May help more than just me.
