How to clear packet list during live capture?

How do I clear the Packet List during a live capture session? The Stop/Start and Restart options do not work for me because I am capturing packets that are piped back to WireShark via SSH.

ssh myserver "sudo tcpdump -i mynetworkinterface -w -" | "/c/Program Files/Wireshark/Wireshark.exe" -k -i -

Of course, I can close the application altogether and relaunch it from the CLI, but it's a little annoying. It seems like an option to "Clear Packet List" would be somewhat minor, almost trivial, to implement.
