Context menu "Add to watch"?

When I right-click selected text in the debugger, I can't find "Add to watch" anywhere.

And how do you delete something from the watch list? When I select a line in the watch list, the "Delete" button is dead. If I manually delete the "name" text, the old value remains.

It's not in the context menu; it's in the Debug menu.

The old value only remains until you actually do something.

From the help: "You can also add a variable to the Watch window by selecting it in the main debugger window, then clicking the right mouse button and selecting "Add to Watch"."

The best place (requiring only one click) would be on the watch list tool bar (or even the main tool bar). I'd put it there but it doesn't have an icon (an eye would nake a good one).

On the contrary, after manually deleting the watch "name", the value remains even after "Start" ... "Run to end". I found no way to get rid of it. Can't you just make the "Delete" button work?

The help is wrong.

I'll add it to the suggestion list for v12.

Please also add a KEYSTROKE to do this for those of us who do not use a
pointing device for text manipulation.

As with every existing menu entry, you can already do that by adding an
accelerator key.
