checking...

Hmm, is that actually supposed to work like that? The same "problem" seems to exist in Blender 2.79.

Maybe this operator is only for the graph editor? However Blender crashes when I execute it there for an unrelated reason...

@Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) I presume the Delete Channels command is suppose to delete channels. What else should it do?

@William Reynish (billreynish), I don't know, I haven't really used the NLA editor at all... I'm just saying that the operator also does nothing in Blender 2.79 (which I usually as baseline).

It's confusing/weird that the Delete option of the menu doesn't work but the rest of options does. At first I though that it was not possible to delete channels until I pressed the Del key.
I think the menu option should delete the channels as the Del key.

This is the menu for the dopesheet / graph editor that is being show in the NLA editor. It doesn't make sense there. It should be hidden, or replaced by a context menu with operators for editing NLA tracks and strips.
