bulk delete of pushs pin sets RRS feed

  • Question

  • anyone know how to select multiple push pin sets in S&T 2010 or 2011 so I can delete many at once. I import about a hundred push pin sets at once and want to get rid of 2/3 of them. Each time I delete one set the list goes back to the top, so each time I have to scroll down many screens to select one more--- over and over.

  • You can delete the pushpins but it will not delete the pushpin sets by doing the following.

    1.  Open (Unhide)  the sets you want to delete and ONLY those sets.

    2.  Select a small rectangular space anywhere on your map that does NOT include any pushpins.

    3.  Right-click and select the "Delete visible pushpins outside area" and click Enter.

    This will have deleted the pushpins and now the pushpin sets will show no matching pushpins under Properties.  Is this better than nothing?
