Is there a way (e.g. something to type in the Command Box or maybe using Collections) to mass update the following on hundreds or thousands of resources?

- Removing or adding Tags

- Removing or adding Stars

- Changing the mobile download status for many resources

Thanks,

Peter

Hi Peter

you can select a range of resources in the library (click one and then shift-click another)

you can then add tags or ratings to the resources selected and manage download states.

you can't remove tags using this method

You can if you're happy to see all tags go, but not if you want to remove one and keep the rest.

I added a tag on most of my resources a while back, and now I want to remove it from all the resources.  I don't have other tags on the resources.

As for the stars, I put stars on some of the resources at one point but now I'd rather have the resources be sorted by the community rankings.

So how do I remove all my tags and stars from all the resources?

And specifically, how do I change the download state of many resources for one particular app (Logos) on one particular device that's low on storage?

Thanks for your help,

Peter

Use Ctrl/Cmd-A to select all of them, and then click Clear Tags and Clear Ratings.
