Reset settings for a specific list in the "Reset list settings" function

Sometimes BASE complains about list settings that does not work with a clearly visible red message. The resolution for this is to use the BASE -> Reset list settings... menu dialogue. The user is given to reset settings in memory or in the database. These two options clears all settings in the memory or database. Resetting all setting is very frustrating so I'd like to request some enhanced features.

Would it be possible to add a reset the specific list setting icon in connection when BASE gets upset (when you get the red message in a specific list view). The message could be displayed and a reset icon would be presented also. The reset should only remove one or as few settings as possible.

If the above is not possible, couldn't we add a listing showing all settings in the database and memory. The listing should support selection of settings and deletion of the selection. This would allow advanced users to try to delete only a part of his settings.

If the list page is displayed completely and links and buttons are working, the simplest way to reset the settings is to use the 'view/presets' selection list. Try selecting 'Default columns' and/or 'Clear filter'. If it still doesn't work try clicking on, for example, the 'Name' column header to select a different sort order. If you get a 'not logged in message' or if the list page is not complete, then the 'view/presets' will not work and other 'reset list settings' function would not work either.

So, this leaves us with the option to clear specific list settings from the special dialog that currently clears all settings. It seems like the core API already has support for deleting the setting for a specfic item type. We just need a method for finding the item types for which settings already exists.
