In the latest preview, it seems that the designer has now changed and you can no longer remove all constraints from an object with the 'X' button.

You now have to remove the constraints one by one.

I see this error made it into the stable release and is still not available in 15.6 preview.  Is there a timeframe as to when we might get this critical functionality back?

Hi Andy!

I'm not able to reproduce behavior where using the X button deletes all the constraints of a view when using an older VSMac 7.2.2 version. That would have been back from before the pre-release of 11/24. Can you clarify what you were doing? I was not aware of a feature to do that. 

As a workaround, you can select all the constraints (SHIFT+Click to select) in the Document View and then delete them all at once. That might help make it a little less annoying in the meantime.

A colleague just informed me of what you were looking at. Sorry for my confusion. 

It's the "Remove existing constraints" button. Marking CONFIRMED.
