other Bulk delete notes?

Recommended Posts

I have a Mac and 2 iOS devices, and use evernote on all three. There are hundreds of notes, many very old. I have started deleting many of them, but it is very slow. Is there a way to bulk delete multiple notes? (I searched both the forums and the knowledge base.)

Have you tried selecting all of the Notes you want to delete, and then press the DELETE key?

No, because when I tap on a note, it selects that note. If t tap on another, it selects that note, not both. I'm doing this on the iPad, does that matter? Is it different if I do it on my computer?

On desktop, open evernote and select 'Notebooks'. At the end of your notebook list you should see 'Trash'. Right click on the 'Trash' box and select 'Empty Trash' from drop-down options.

I don't see an easy way on the iPad/iPhone.  It doesn't even allow you to delete a Notebook.

In EN  Win, EN Mac and EN Web, you could just delete the Notebook, and it would also delete ALL notes in it.

Indeed.

 

Bulk actions are not possible on iPhone/iPad (just yet). On Mac you can delete multiple notes at once by selecting all the notes you want to delete (by holding the cmd-key when selecting them), and then hitting backspace or by dragging them to the Dock's bin.
