Low priority wishlist improvement: Paper UI- Hide the delete icon for items/things for objects created from a text file.
In my system, some items are created via the Paper UI, other items are created via a .items text file. In Paper UI, deleting jsonDB items (objects created directly from inside Paper UI) works perfectly! I can delete those items without an error. However, deleting items that exist because they were created from a .items text file results in errors (Items = 404 Not Found. Things = 409 Conflict).
As a beginner, I had assumed that if I delete an item in Paper UI, for an object in my .items file, it would delete that line from the text file. It does not. The icon is a just a tease. It just generates an error instead.
Recommendation: Can we please revise the code to only show the delete icon for jsonDB objects (objects created from Paper UI)? If the code does not support the ability to delete *.item text file objects, then let’s hide the delete icon in that situation.
