All  -  Is there way to delete multiple bookmarks at once in ArcGIS Pro?  I have over 200 bookmarks but I need only 16 of those bookmarks as of now, is there a way to delete the unwanted ones without having to click one by one? Dan Patterson Robert Schmidley

doesn't appear that the shift-highlight method works, but what I did is click on the first, then drag my mouse down so they were highlighted in blue, slowly I moved over to the right and clicked the X on the lower one and they were all removed

scratch that... I went back, and every one except the last were there... but wasn't a big issue in my sample of 3

You missed the scratch that comment... I left the initial comment in case you had seen it

Hi Dan,

Please, I saw the scratch message, if I got it right, you meant I click the first bookmark, the drag mouse down so the bookmarks are highlighted blue and I hit the X. 

I tried that, only one bookmark gets highlighted, and if I click the X, it removes only one. I want to remove multiple at once.  


See the image below, only the south get highlighted, and if I click x, only the south gets removed. I want to be able to remove North, South, East, West, all at once. Also if I select and drag, it rearranges the bookmarks instead of highlighting all of them in blue.

 Maybe the should consider option of being able to select and delete multiple bookmarks in the future.


Also in an unrelated question, is it possible to use Arcpy to export a subset of all bookmarks, for example, can I export only North, East, and West out of all the bookmarks without iterating through and exporting each one of them?
