Advanced clipboard usage

Select a page, in the List view. If not activated, click on Show Clipboard (1). Select “Clipboard #1 (multi-selection mode)” in the clipboard panel on the bottom of the page. You can now check all records (3) or check just the ones you want to work on. Each record now has a checkbox.

  2. Transfer to Clipboard all selected items at once
  3. Remove from Clipboard all selected items at once
  4. Delete all selected items at once
