    In version 5.2.xx, how can I remove (and bulk remove) shadow files?

    I tried what’s written on the manual ( version 4, but I can’t find any of the options

    <h4><span id=”Completely_removing_Shadow_files.2Ffolders” class=”mw-headline”>Completely removing Shadow files/folders</span></h4>
    If you untag a shadow file, Tabbles will still hold a record of the file in its database. This is done for several reason. You can completely remove shadow files in different ways:
    <h4><span id=”Remove_the_selected_shadow_file.28s.29.2Ffolder.28s.29″ class=”mw-headline”>Remove the selected shadow file(s)/folder(s)</span></h4>
    You’ll need to select the file(s)/folder(s) you want to remove, then <i>Right click > More > Untag completely (ALT + F)</i>.
    <h3><span id=”Bulk_remove_shadow_file.28s.29.2Ffolder.28s.29″ class=”mw-headline”>Bulk remove shadow file(s)/folder(s)</span></h3>
    If you need to remove <b>all the shadow files from a folder, a disk or a tag</b>, then <i>Right click > Advanced > Remove all shadow files in this tag from the database</i>.

    If you want to remove <b>all the shadow files from the database</b>, Right click on “Workspace” then “Remove all shadow files in this tag from the database”.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Sergio,

    you’re right, in Tabbles 5 you can use the Database Edit Wizard.

    Please check manual again, just updated it.

    It’s not as straight forward, since you need to copy/paste or type the path, but did the job.


    Thank you
