Hello Stu,
Could not find a dedicated thread for this subject - so created this one.

On the extension "List Future Reminders", is it possible to add an option to delete a reminder ?

When accounts are zeroed and closed - reminders remain. The extension helps search/filter for associated reminders. Double click takes you to an entry screen. Right click provides option to edit the reminder. But it would help if an option to delete the reminder was also available.

    Done. Latest PREVIEW with the right-click delete reminder option is available on my site (under the previews section).

    thanks - installed. Works like a charm.

    A few things noticed:

    -- on opening the extension, please throw focus into the search field.

    -- searched for an outdated reminder. Found 2 instances - for two different dates ( which is accurate). Right clicked on one of them and deleted. However, BOTH reminders got deleted. Basically, all related reminders ( past and future ) gets deleted. This took me by surprise - but guess this is normal and by design 'cos there is an option to skip prior transactions in the entry screen. Suggestion is to change the warning to alert the user. Perhaps something along the lines of ALL RELATED / LISTED REMINDERS WILL BE DELETED. ARE YOU SURE.... Y/N ?

    Both changes made.. Latest preview is uploaded to my site.

    FYI - There is only ever one reminder for a reminder... What's shown on the LFR screen are calculated future versions.. They do not exist. Hence, when you delete a reminder (by clicking on any row), you are deleting the single existing reminder and also therefore removing the calculated future dated rows (that do not exist).
