Does anybody know how to change/correct/delete segmentes of a source text in the Editor of Studio 2014/2015? Is it possible?

Yes by using "Edit Source" Apr 18, 2016

There is a command "Edit Source" or "ALT-F2"" that allows you to modify the source segment, but you need to activate it first by going to your "Project Settings". On the very top level of the options, you will see an option "Allow source editing". Make sure it is checked.

In case you received the project as a project package and the person who created the package did not set this option, then you can't change it anymore and cannot use source editing.

Can't find the option to activate the function. I did found "Edit Source" (Alt-F2), but it is greyed out. Could you please tell me where to find it?
