[Jalview-discuss] Delete non-gap sites in linked split frame view?

I've encountered an issue while working with the linked split frame view for looking simultaneously at the nucleotide and corresponding amino acid sequences of an alignment. What I would like to do is edit non-gap sites (specifically, delete entire columns) in the amino acid alignment and have the nucleotide alignment change/update accordingly.

If I understand it correctly, the current split frame view editing capability works with deleting and inserting gaps sites only (As stated in the jalview help documentation "Editing (gap insertion / deletion) in the protein alignment is reflected in the cDNA (but not vice versa)"). It's great that Jalview added this capability, but is it (or could it be) possible to delete non-gap sites as well?

Let me know additional information would be useful.
