  Can't clear preview pane

Status in OpenLP:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  Version 1.9.9 (Windows XP Home)

  Basically, I miss a feature from the older 1.x versions wherein it was
  possible to clear the preview pane. I often accidentally preview
  something, and then to have it staying on the screen with no way to
  remove it easily can be distracting. Furthermore, some of our less
  experienced operators get confused by it, and try to change the verses
  there instead of in the live pane.

  I realise it is possible to just hide the preview pane, but I'd rather
  just be able to clear it.

  I also see a good argument for it clearing itself after either going
  live with it or adding it to the service. I think this is a natural
  thing that you preview something and then you take an action based on

  1) Go live. If it's live, it doesn't need to be in the preview pane
  any longer, since it's now in the Live pane. It should basically just
  "hop across".

  2) Add to service: The user has decided that they want this song, and
  so they add it to the service. They are probably finished previewing
  the song, so I think it's safe to clear the preview (and users will
  become accustomed to this).

  3) Just clear the preview. It wasn't the song you wanted, you're done
  searching for songs, etc, you just want it out of the way.

  4) Edit the item. You preview it and decide it needs some changes, you
  make the changes and then you'll want to preview those changes. After
  which you'll again probably want to do one of action 1/2/3/4.
