I would like to see that you can clear old hide-when formulae more easily. At this moment you can disable a hide-when formula in multiple fields on a form, but there is  no easy way to blank out the old formula.

Automatic blanking of the old formula would not be a good thing when you temporarily disable a hide-when during debugging.

That is why it should be done in combination with an indication that you want (or not) to clear all old formulae.

I agree. Hide when box smells fishy.
Select all (Ctrl+A) doesn't work either. Not in normal hide when box nor extended Formula window.

It would be a big time saver for me. It is possible to disable the hide-when formula for multiple design elements but I would prefer to have the formulae themselves removed too.

I usually solve this by selecting multiple paragraphs/elements, typing an 'x' in the hide when formula, clicking the 'accept' checkmark. This way all formulas are the same. Then remove the 'x', and accept again. You can disable the hide box too.
I know it's annoying, but it works, and once you get used to it, quickly done.
