I have a few URLs in Safari bookmarks that are no longer useable.
When I activate QS and they show up, I tab to the 2ndary field and hope to Delete from there.
Delete doesn’t show up even though it is checked in QS/Actions/Core.
Nor does “Get file URL”.
Or am I thinking this wrong?

Or is there no way to delete an item from the QS catalog/plist without editing the QS plist?

Those actions only work on files, not items in the QS catalog.

Rescanning that preset from the prefs should work (you can find it with “Show Source in Catalog”), but things can stick around if they make their way into recent objects, etc. I would just delete the caches in ~/Library/Caches/Quicksilver and restart.
