New Check box sectioning

Jason Schaefer 4 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Patrick O'Lone (Director of Software Development) 4 years ago 8
It would be nice to add a clear button for the new section system. I am often hearing complaints from our copy desk and editors about incorrect sections being included because they are so used to the old method. Right now they are having to find the active check boxes and uncheck them when they change sections on upload.

Hi Jason!

We are already planning on adding this in our next minor update. It will just be a "clear sections" button at the bottom of the section popup.

Let me know what you think! =)

I like the new clear sections box. Hope you will consider it on the asset page. I do a lot of batch uploading, etc., and it would be great to have the "clear selections" instead of individually having to remove the check boxes.
Hey Maunette,
Is this what you are referring?


I should say I was on the batch edit screen.

Jason, I was talking about the main asset page. Usually, I will select multiple assets, say like when I batch upload photos or parse stories, and then move them to the proper section, time, or whatever using batch edit
Once I am done, all the assets are still selected and I have to uncheck every one of them (you can see the assets selected behind the batch edit box). It's not  a *big* deal, but a small annoyance that I can't clear them (especially if I forget to uncheck one or two).
Clicking the checkbox column header twice will clear all selections:



You can also right-click on the asset list and choose 'Select none' from the menu:
