Yes, I agree. I see you have done it in the meantime => very nice!
However, looking more at the view item context menu I find it questionable. 
I think we should reorganize and simplify it like that:
- Edit
- Raise
- Lower
---- (separator)----
- Delete
---- (separator)----
- Lock Position to Data

And while we are at context menus, the plot one could also do with some rearrangement.
I'll make a proposal one of these days. But I'd like to first check against kst 1.x.

YES! Excellent ideas. I think the values don't make sense for normal people as they currently are.
The "problem" is that this leads to a bit of code changes since currently all those parts are inherited
from ViewItemDialog, which would need to be specialized for each sort of view object. But I completely 
support the idea. I was actually about to complain that the plot dialog also shows the "Lock Position to Data"
entry which does not make sense in that case. That could also be fixed in the same process.

OK, I'll do it.
