Data lost after saving when the top line of the Area region is deleted

I seem to lose the bottom portion of a calculation when I save or maybe when I close out of a document. I'm not sure where the "split" occurs but the document does contain multiple separators, images and areas. [...] if you insert an Area then delete the top line of the area and leave the bottom line. I must have done this accidentally but none the less it seems you lose all the data below the bottom area line.

- Automatic removing of paired part of an Area implemented (when possible) if top or bottom Area part deleted by user;
- Open/save mechanizm improved to support possibility of missing part of an Area (no lost regions under bottom Area part anymore).

I agree with you Martin.

If any delimiter (top or bottom) of an area region is deleted, I recommend to automatically delete the other one as well, perhaps with a confirmation dialog (Do you really want to delete the area delimiters) and perhaps offering to delete the contents and the canvas space of the region. Then, the mentioned problem should be avoided. Also, accidentally generated overlapping regions could be much easier resolved
