Someone asked:

Using Slang Extension version of Ecco.  Calendar entry increases items count.  Deleting Calendar entry does not decrease item count.

Have to watch my item count.  Currently eccoMAGIC MEMORY REPORT SHOWS:

21.502 ITEMS* /  3.839 VIEW LINES / 11,789 POINTERS:  (44,025 FREE)

USED THE EM-ADT tool on .eco file that had 64,000 Items.   Couldn't get items count down even with CTL Y delete on my 2,000 item count phone book.  It deleted the entries from Phone Book but not reduce item count.

Somehow I made a backup file that came up with the 21,502 Items so I am good to go, but concerned about future item count if deleting entries doesn't reduce item count.

 
 
Marking an item and pressing DELETE key (no control or Y necessary),  should bring up 'delete items entirely from file (all views)' prompt.    Did it do that ?

If you delete an item from a folder,  it removes the item from that folder only,  not from the file.  Only deleting an item entirely will remove it from a file.
