Deleting Documents in Casedo
In Casedo, you can easily delete individual pages, single documents or multiple documents. Please remember that there is no Undo (Command / Ctrl + Z) function in Casedo, all deletions are permanent.
WARNING – There is an existing bug in Casedo related to using this feature (deleting single documents). Occasionally when deleting a single page in this way, bookmarks above the deleted page move down causing the bookmarks to be in the wrong order. If you use this feature we highly recommend making a back up copy of the Casefile first. If you want to delete a single page, the alternative is to use the Split and Merge features. You should always have back ups in place!
Deleting single pages
To delete individual pages within a document, do so by using the delete function located on the selected page.
1. Locate and click on the three dots located on the top right of the page you want to delete.
2. Click on the red trash bin icon.
3. You will then get a confirmatory pop-up, after pressing yes, your page will be permanently deleted.
Deleting a single document
If you wish to delete a specific document in your Index or the Desk Space, apart from the trash bin feature located on the Desk Space (click HERE for more on this), you can also delete them using the right click (context menu) option.
1. Locate the document you want to delete in either your Index or the Desk Space, and right click on the document name.
2. Click on the ‘Delete Document’ option.
3. You will then get a confirmatory popup to double check whether you want that document deleted, after pressing yes, it will be permanently deleted.
Deleting multiple documents
If you need to delete more than one document, use the multi-select function.
1. Click once on a document till you see a grey shade over it, was shown below.
