 If I need to permanently remove an activity's code, in Build joyride-2230
 hovering on an activity in Home view brings up {name of activity} with an
 Erase menu item.  But in the Journal, the default for each "session
 document" is "Write Activity", "Paint Activity", etc. and those also have
 an Erase menu item. One action removes the activity's code (after a
 confirmation prompt), the other action just removes a "session document"
 without a prompt; from the language alone it's easy to get them confused.

 Scenario: you're told "Erase the Write activity to upgrade/free up
 space/it has a virus" and you go into the Journal, find something called
 "Write Activity" and erase it.

 Maybe the answer is to change the Journal's default "session document"
 name.  I can't find a good synonym for "activity" -- "toil in the Write
 Activity"?  "Write Activity shenanigans"?
