Deleting multiple topics

Postby Colum on Thu Sep 19, 2019 7:59 am

An easy one for all you propeller heads...

I've a selection of topics I want to remove from my project. It looks like you can't select them in the Content Explorer (even though there is a tick box next to the file name) and the only way to delete them is individually via the right click menu. Is this the case?

In the Content Explorer, there is a button named "Toggle Show Files" - click it. It displays your list of files in another little pane. From here, you can multi-select and delete your topics.

The regular mode of the Content Explorer doesn't quite act like a real file explorer, which can be annoying.

Hope this helps!

A-ha! Thanks Cat. Mind you selecting the files wasn't done as I'd expect, namely clicking the tick boxes. The wonders of Flare :-)

That's not a tick box, it's a conditions indicator. If you've got a condition applied to the topic, that box shows the colour associated with the condition. It catches a lot of people out, so you're not alone!

Thanks ChoccieMuffin - also a great name BTW :-) You've inadvertently answered another question I had in your response. Two for the price of one. Happy days :-)
