As a follow up to this question, how do I delete a single file without losing the selection that I've already got?

for i in $(seq 1 5); do touch "$i.jpg"; done;
mkdir subdir

Let's say you marked 1.jpg, and 2.jpg, but now you want to want to delete 3.jpg before you continue and select 4.jpg and move {1,2,4}.jpg into ./subdir?

To delete the highlighted file (without changing the marked files) you can add a keybinding to ~/.config/ranger/rc.conf:

map xd delete %f

%f will expand to the highlighted file (delete without arguments deletes the marked file).
