Discarding Topics

farVIEW never truly discards a topic. Or, might I say, it simply puts discarded topics into the Discard pile. When farVIEW creates the farBook, it creates a special topic, called the Discards topic. Normally, the Discards topic is not visible, but you can make it visible by selecting the File/Discards menu item. You can discard a topic; i.e., make it the child of the Discards topic in any of three ways: Note that you can easily un-discard a topic by dragging the topic from the Discards topic to a different parent node. Obviously, you will have to make the Discards topic visible first.
