You're possibly not pressing the Delete key, but the Backspace key. On a G5 keyboard, the Delete key is *not* above Return, but on the little pad above the cursors that has Page Up, Page Down, End and so on.

If you're on a PowerBook/iBook, the delete key (that behaves like a PC's delete key) is fn+delete.

Yes I did notice this too--Apple apps and other Mac-version apps (incl Photoshop) use the backspace key instead. In LW you must use the delete key. Its a minor thing, but it did take a little getting used to.

Although it is my preference to have one Viewport always in schematic mode, and i just right-click and hit "clear item" from there... but thats just me.
