1. Start Edit session
2. Open table
3. Select records

Delete button on keyboard does not delete records.
Delete (X) button on table view tool bar does not light up.

No help from UI. ArcGIS Help tells me to do the steps I already am doing.

4. Abandon ArcGIS for other software to get work done...again.
5. Proposed regressing to ArcView 3.3 again. Japan is still on 3.3 (stability, performance).

Don't remember the software being this difficult to use - a constant struggle to get anything useful done. Terrible.
