Delete does not appear as an option on my iPad version when double tapping the topic and holding down on the subject, as various mindset employees have advised in previous posts.

Please advise the hidden secret everyone asking is seeming to miss.

The main gestures in the app are:

•Single Tap on topic: expand/collapse subtopic(s)
•Single Tap and Hold on topic: expose Create tool (a system of horizontal [subtopic], vertical [topic], and diagonal [relationship] arrows. Once exposed, user slides finger over to desired target and releases to expose the Create Widget
•Double Tap on topic: display Create Widget
•Double Tap and Hold on topic: expose File handling menu (multicolored Pie UI)

On this last gesture, the trick is to ensure that you do a true double tap, such that the finger pulls off the screen on the first tap, and remains in 'hold' state on the second tap. This will expose the File handling menu, so that you can delete, copy, paste, etc. Some existing users were familiar with this feature, were able to pick it up, or used Undo for this purpose, but too many existing users didn't find it intuitive enough, so we are submitting to the AppStore an update which will havea delete button inside the Create Widget. That will provide 3 different ways to Delete or Undo creation or edit of a topic. We hope it will come available soon.
