From the Outline Editor, you can delete any link between a document and its parent document. For example, you can remove a section (or module) from a module, a topic from a section or module, a section from another section, and so on.
Deleting a link does not remove a document from the Library; it only removes the link between the selected document and its parent. Deleting a link in the Outline Editor also does not remove other linked content from the document such as a web page or package attachment.
You can use either the Delete Link or Cut command to remove links. The Cut command makes the document available for pasting; however, the Delete Link command does not.
Note: You cannot remove the root document in the Outline Editor.
Find Orphan Documents
When you delete document links from an outline, the result may be orphan documents that are no longer needed. You can use the Library to find orphan documents with no relationships to other documents. To do this, add the Links to column to the Library and sort the column show documents with zero links first. You should review the list and identify those documents that you want to delete. Keep in mind that module and section documents with zero links may be used as the root document in one or more outlines.
