The options on the [deals] menu are nearly always available.

 

Add new random

A new deal is generated randomly and placed as the last deal in the file. The board number is one more than the last deal, and the dealer and vulnerability are assigned based on that number. No bidding or play is generated.

 

Add new empty

A new deal is created and placed as the last deal in the file. The board number is one more than the last deal, and the dealer and vulnerability are assigned based on that number. No cards are dealt, no bidding or play is generated. The pre-deal screen is shown and you may choose to pick the cards for the deal.

 

Duplicate deal

A new deal is created and placed as the last deal in the file. All the details of the current deal are copied into this deal. The board number is one greater than the current deal, but all other information is the same, including dealer and vulnerability.

 

Delete deal

The current deal is deleted from the in memory file, but if the option [check delete] is ticked you will be asked if you want to proceed . Once deleted the only way to recover the deal is to reload (open) the file without saving the current file.

 

Clear all cards

All the cards of the current deal are removed. You will need to use the [pre-deal cards] item on the options menu to pick the cards for the deal. If the option [check delete] is ticked you will be asked if you want to proceed with the removal.
