Whoops. Yes, that should be helpful. Sorry for the noise then.

Which is mostly out of context, though. Contains 10 entries,
of which 9 are disabled, and the tenth is not relevant for
polylines ("Select all"?). If one has drawn a polyline before, then it
also has "Undo polyline" or "Redo polyline" enabled, which isn't of
much help in this stage. If I'm in the middle of drawing a polyline
then the only thing I want is to finish it. I can still undo it
afterwards with Ctrl-z. This is one of the useless and overcrowded
popup menus that people love to hate in KDE. (And now I shut up,
before someone suggests that I do it better. ;-)
