About This Project

Overview

If you have a big sketchbook, you may want to cleanup/categorize things once in a while. With our bulk action tool, you can delete, move or download multiple sketches at the same time.

Deleting several tutorials.

Step 1

Step 2

  • If you want to remove the whole selection, you can click anywhere outside of the sidebar, press the ESC button on your keyboard, or press the deselection icon (the X button by the ‘
    Selected
    ’ text on the bulk action toolbar). Instead if you want to select multiple sketches at once just pick the first, hold ‘
    shift
    ’ key on your keyboard, and select the last one.

Some notes on this feature:

  • If you select multiple files and hit ‘
    Download
    ’ we will package a nice single .zip file for you. Please note that unfortunately Safari does not support a standard download attribute in HTML5, so for now this feature is supported only on Firefox, Chrome and Edge.
  • You can’t bulk action on folders. If you want to delete a whole folder just right click on it and select ‘
    Delete’
    from the contextual menu.
