Target blank segments & drag'n'drop

I decided to combine two wishes in one topic.
I have WF Pro 3.1.3.

1) When translating I often leave some target segments blank, if I e.g. include those translation in previous segment etc. Ok, segment is blank, but when I export the translated text into Word, in that 'blank' place stays source text and I have to delete it manually. Is it possible to add an option to delete the source text in the exported file, if the relevant target segment had been left empty? It would be a feature, where I could check (or somehow mark) the segments I wish them to be deleted.

2) I've already opened this question once, but now I'd like to remind it. It would be nice to see drag and drop feature for selected target text, e.g. if I want to change words order in a sentence.

Thank you!

Nice, thanks!
I see you are already working on WFP 4. When is it going to come to the world?
