I'm doing a cleanup and just noticed that I have to go through each entry and delete them individually. Is there a way to delete a block?

Also noted that after a few deletions something funny happens to the database and it stops responding to deletion requests and comes up with the famous Java error :).

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers!

Hi Kris,

Sorry, there isn't a way to delete a block of entries all at once. (I think we basically wanted to make it slow to delete entries so you wouldn't lose any by mistake!) If you wanted to delete all your entries and start over, you could just re-install the software, which would overwrite all your entries so far. So if you wanted to, say, delete 30 entries and save just 2, then it might actually be easiest to copy the ones you want to keep, start over with a new, empty database and paste them in. (The date field is editable.)

For help with things producing Java errors (argh, sorry to hear that...), you need Justin at the helpdesk.
