#1072 closed defect (fixed)

It is too easy to accidentally delete all your data columns in the Attribute Table Manager

Reported by: isaacullah Owned by: martinl

This isn't a bug per se, but it is much more than an enhancement request. When you right click on the column names in the "manage tables" tab of the Attribute Table Manager, you get a nice pull down with some options ("drop selected column, drop all columns, reload). This is great. However, the "drop all columns" function is dangerously close to the "drop selected column" option, and if you accidentally choose that, all columns are dropped instantly with out an "are you sure you want to do that?" message. Adding a second pop-up approval step for dropping columns would be a very very good feature to add in here. As it is now, you can instantaneously delete all data in a table with just one mis-click of the mouse, and there is no way to recover it. This is a serious issue which IMO should be remedied ASAP.
