[HowTo] Selecting multiple items for edit, playlist, etc.
Selecting Multiple Items
This is covered in the online help, but it can be hard to find, so I've decided to write this quick how-to.
Manually selecting items in Plex is easy. Whether your library is displaying Artists, Albums, or Tracks (in Music libraries. These steps also apply in Movies, TV, and in a limited way in Photo libraries), on the left sidebar in Plex Web, find the 'Select' button:
Click it to remove the checkmark. This puts you into Select mode (seems backward, I know). Now click on the items you want. A checkmark will appear (or an orange vertical bar for tracks) on selected items.
You may also multi-select items by using the Ctrl or Shift key while clicking on items. Ctrl+click allows you to select multiple individual items. Shift+click allows you to select a range of items (Shift+click first and last items, and everything between them will be selected). This is similar to the way most file manager applications work.
Top Issues (Plex Pass users, if you agree, please vote):
• Eliminate need for the 'Plex Dance' • Search only returns first 30 results • Implement 'Use embedded tags' option for Photo libraries • Changing setting in one library changes all libraries • Broader support for ID3 v2.4 tags
