I try backspace, I try clicking on it, but I can't seem to delete the page section, only the content in it. I guess I could probably do it with the source editor, but there must be an easier way?
Unfortunately, the option to non-destructively remove multi-sections as shown in the above comment and return to a single panel is only available in Server/Data-Center. If you are on the Cloud, the editor has regressed to a destructive removal of sections only.

There is a way to do this using the free 'Confluence Source Editor' add-on:
Once installed and activated, you have to (carefully!!) remove all the tags pertaining to the layout macro (<ac:layout...>) including their respective closing tags by hand.
It's not a pretty solution, but it has worked for me several times. And using the built-in Search & Replace function of the add-on, it's not that hard to do, either.
But it would sure be nice if Atlassian added a possibility to remove section/layout macros without deleting all the content that's in them without hacking the source code!
