Problems with deleting equations in a sketch

I’m having trouble with equations used in sketches.  Specifically deleting them.

 

Maybe there’s a right and wrong way to do this.…..SW2014 SP4.0

 

Example:  I have a sketch that uses an equation to locate a line.  I no longer want the equation driving the location so I edit the sketch, click on the dimension (shown as an equation), and either delete it or change it to a specific value.

 

As soon as I exit the sketch, I get an error in the equations folder. The problem is, the equation is no longer in the folder to delete.  Catch 22.  I can't fix the problem I just created. The only “solution” I have found is to go into the equations folder and delete the equation BEFORE doing anything in the sketch.  If I don’t, it’s never ending problems ahead.

 

Why can’t I delete the equations, just as I created them, from within the sketch?
