say I want to delete 10 things off my plant list, is there a way I do it all at once? I only see an option to click the trash can and do it one at a time and that takes quite a while! Then after I delete something it asks if I want to return to my list, so I do but it starts my list all over again and I have to re-enter the settings and scroll down to find where I was at. So for example my want list as 25 KINDS of plants and I am only sorting through Plant Kind 1. I delete something and then return to the list. It then starts all over showing all 25 kinds and I have to re set it to only show Plant Kind 1 again. Is that how it is supposed to work or am I missing something? I would like to delete an entry and then have it return me to exactly where I was at.

Here's how I would do it:

Hold down the Control key on your keyboard and then click on the delete icon and it'll open the delete window in a new tab. Go down your list and do that for all the ones you want to delete. Then go into the tabs and click the confirm each one. When you are done, return to your lists page and refresh to see them gone.

ok I will try that. I am pretty sure that is too many steps for us old ladies but then I don't consider myself an old lady, so either way this may take a while Smiling I will experiment and report back later... to be continued...

thank you dave!
