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
item. You can discard a topic; i.e., make it the child of the
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.
Select the topic to discard with the RMB, then select the Discard topic
Select the topic to discard, then press the Delete key.
Make the Discards topic visible as described, then drag the discarding
topic onto the Discards topic.
