Thanks Daniel, yes this is the 2nd request for a delete all feature in Physics. It's an easy code addition (ignoring that we would need to redesign the primary toolbars to fit in an additional icon), but a dangerous one without an undo feature, allowing you to wipe everything with a single toolbar click is asking for trouble... Best we could do given that adding undo to Physics is not an easy task is to have the feature raise a confirmation alert.

Note that the Erase tool works like an eraser, you can scrub over the canvas with a 'line of death' removing many objects all in one quick scribble.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm hoping to get back to Physics feature work in the next cycle.
