Excuse me for the silly question, I am rather new in Melodya.
I drag'n'drop a short midi file into Melodya's interface, and it's seen as one motive. My midi is a melodic phrase with a ABACAD structure. I put the cursor at the end of my first A, and split at connection. Motive A is created, and Melodya calls the rest B: well done. I put the cursor at the end of my B section, split at connection, my B is called motive B my Melodya and the rest C. Fine so forth. I go to the end of my second A section, split, and melodya calls it C and calls the rest D. So I go in the upper part of Melodya's "C" motive and say to Melodya that it is actually A, exactly equal to the first A, by clicking in the A buttons. But then, my section C is called motive D, I may go on, and Melodya will create motive E and F, the result is that I don't use melodya's C motive. How can I delete the unused C motive so that I have more space for variations?
Thanks

Thanks, BluGenes for the reply but that removes a section, not a motive (letter).

It was not possible to remove unused motives simply because I have not thought of that.
Today I added a new menu item in the context menu, and uploaded Melodya v1.3.2:

The same will appear in RapidComposer v4.3.4 which can be downloaded now (official announcement on Monday).

Thanks!

AMAZING answer!! I am suprised and delighted. Thanks a lot, PRO user feedback! Indeed the new feature is needed because we have a 8 motive limit, while we can create more than 8 sections.
I midi-record a melody, then double it in my DAW and drag it to Melodya. By splitting existing midi I soon reach the 8 motive limit, since a new motive is generated automatically at each section split.
I adore the musical rules that makes me transform the second part by transpose, invert, shift etc and get to a musical result quick. I prefer much this, over the frustrating browsing of infinite midi loop collections (like the nasty advertised Unison), or spending one afternoon by clicking repeatedly the button of a only-random-generator (like Audiomodern Riffer), which I did in the recent past. I use your dice (constrained- light random gen), but mainly you have musical rules inside, and that's beautiful, quicker and leaves me in control. I'm spreading the word in youtube video comments..
