Bulk remove External Selections entries


#1

Hi
Is there a quick way to remove all of these entries other than individually via the Delete button? I tried Ctrl, Shift and Alt select and they do not work.
Thanks

Hello,

No, it’s not possible to remove All the selections at a time.

Curious: What is an “External Selection” ?

Hi John!

The hits in the PL Manual for a search of “External Selection” appear in relationship to the “DxO One” camera. I did not see it in any other context.

External Selections is in PhotoLibrary, down the bottom on left side. Shows a history of what was imported and when. Actually I do not use or refer to it hence my query about deleting contents.

Exactly! This is the list of imports from third-party applications.

I’m still not aware of this - - They don’t appear anywhere in my PL installation.
Just to satisfy my curiosity, would you mind posting a screenshot (?)

Hopefully you can open this.

Thank you - my curiosity is now satisfied.

I don’t see that on my installation … perhaps 'cos I don’t use LR, or any other non-DxO product (?)

In contrast, my side-panel is very “clean & simple” - - - and I can understand why you would like yours to be so too !
DxO_PhotoLibrary

If you click on Folders (to expand that section of the panel) does that list of External Selections not get relegated to the bottom of the screen (Still not ideal - but not too noticeable either).

John,

It appears with the first third-party import :wink: until then it’s hidden.

I normally keep it closed - just opened it to show you!
