Is there a method of deleting previously created expressions without deleting the conditional text itself? You can add multiple expressions, but without being able to remove them, the list could get quite long.
One way to clear the build expressions is saving to MIF and editing the MIF file (saving it back as .fm after opening it).
Another way is to save the document as FM7, then re-open it and save it again. Some FM8-specific features may be lost in the process, so please first try on a copy. [3D and SWF, both of which are FM8-specific, were not affected; Unicode-related items will be affected]
Indeed, an easier way is needed!

Thank you for your answer. The first option would definately be the safest way as a workaround.
However, this functionality should be available in the user interface.
I see either one of the following options a good method:
- Next to the Build Expression button, a Delete Extression option. So select the expression you wish to delete and press Delete Expression.
- Alternatively, there is a clear button in the Build Expression environment. When you currently press Clear, followed by OK you get an error that the expression is invalid. Perhaps instead of assuming the expression is invalid, the assumption could be made that the expression is cleared/deleted?
