Default Delete empty takes...?

How can I delete empty takes?
They are not even selectable, so how to get rid of them?

I have an item with 10 takes, of which 6 are designated "(empty lane)" on the item right-click Take menu. I want to keep the other 4, but get rid of the 6 empty ones.

I guess I could explode and implode, but that seems overly complicated. There's gotta be a better/easier way. Not?

I'm not sure how I ended up with this item with the empty takes, but somehow the new takes-system managed that for me. I think it occurred because I had several items on a track, and did different amounts of takes for the respective items. I see I also have one item with 9 takes of which only one is non-empty.

There simply has to be an easy way to remove empty takes...

EDIT: Now that I think of it, maybe this is not a v4 issue. I see that there are some SWS/S&M actions for dealing with empty takes, but I've never had empty takes with v3. And beside, the SWS/S&M actions don't work in v4...

I havn't used it yet but there is a sws extention "SWS/S&M: Takes - Remove empty takes/items along selected items"

You might try making a shortcut to that and trying it to see if it does what you want.

Ooops... I searched and searched the actions list, but somehow these slipped under my radar. And it works! Great. Thanks.

@ppwazzup: I tried the SWS/S&M action, but I couldn't get it to do anything.
