Select multiple objects in Nav Pane (A2007)

P: n/a
In Access 2007, you can select multiple items in the Navigation Pane, via
Shift+Click, Ctrl+Click, Shift+arrow keys, etc.

You can also Shift+Del an object to delete it without confirmation (just
like the Database window in previous versions.)

*But*, when you Shift+Del, A2007 misinterprets the held-down Shift and
selects *all* previous objects in the list.

Does that sound dangerous to you? If you Shift+Del the last form, and slip
(tapping the Del key a 2nd time), you have just deleted all forms in the
database - with no confirmation!

Geez! The shock would give me a heart attack! Thanks for the heads up for
Access 2007 and making me even more paranoid about backups.
