I don't think there is an IDE-native way to do it. If you still have MC 
it is easiest to just remove it there. In Revolution, you can do it from 
the message box:

delete stack "answer dialog" of stack "myMainstack"

Be sure to use the long stack reference, or you might accidentally 
remove the IDE's answer dialog instead.
