Deleting old transaction descriptions?

Can I delete some entries from the Description drop-down on the New Transaction dialog?

I've been using Personal Finances for several years now, and any entry that you ever type into the Description field (when adding a new transaction) is offered as an entry in future. This can be quite annoying, as in my case I purchased '2 kettles' three years ago. Now I have to scroll past that as being the first entry in the list - every time I want to add a transaction. So, can I delete that entry to stop it appearing in future?

Hi

I appreciate that you want to sell your latest version, and I may well buy the upgrade - if you can answer the question about whether the facility exists to Delete old transaction descriptions?

There is no drop-down list of descriptions anymore, and no option to erase one. Drop-down list appears only when you start typing and show you few items only.
