MCL does not have any keys bound to a function that will do
what you want. Making one yourself is easy:
(defun ed-delete-selection-silently (self)
(multiple-value-bind (b e) (selection-range self)
(unless (eql b e)
(let ((buf (fred-buffer self)))
(buffer-delete buf b e)))))
(def-fred-command (:control :meta #\w) ed-delete-selection-silently)
You may want to bind this to a different key or make it a menu item.
