Pinned topic How to delete a large part of entries from a Dictionary?

‏2012-09-13T10:26:52Z |
Hi,

My question is about a Dictionary refactoring. Could you please advise how to delete a large part of following each other entries from a Dictionary? For example, I have a fifteen-thousand-word Dictionary and I decided to delete all entries started from "worked". Please see the attached picture.

Currently I can delete only one entry at once, and then the Dictionary collapses.

    Unfortunately, you can not delete more than one entry at a time from the database. However, if you need to do this, you can export the content of the database, delete the entries you wish to delete using a text editor, then re-import the data into the database.

    Thank you for your response.
