In the dialog boxes of some Utility menu, there is a

mand, the data prior to editing will be deleted, and
will be overwritten by the edited data. Normally, you
will execute the Write operation without checking this,
so that the unedited data is preserved. When you are
completely finished with your editing, you can use the
Utility menu command "Delete SMPL" to delete
unneeded samples.

shown in gray on the keyboard display). You can
select the base key by holding down the [ENTER]
