How do you remove files form a file set?1 user found helpful
I really love Concrete5 but this doesn't seem very obvious to me at all and I think there could be a more intuitive way of organising and manipulating files.
After uploading multiple files via the incoming folder, I was prompted to add the newly uploaded files to a fileset. I created a new unique name, and saved the changes. Later I wanted to remove one of the files from the fileset. I opened file-manager and found the file I wanted removed, left clicked the file and selected SETS from the pop-up context menu. A dialog box opened up, showing all filesets. A green check was in the box next to the fileset(s) that this particular file belonged to.
In order for me to check or un-check a fileset, I had to DOUBLE-CLICK the check box.
Not very intuitive, maybe a bug, maybe normal by design.
After re-arranging all of my files I found I had 2 filesets that contained no files. From the dashboard I opened up the File Sets manager, But I did not see the empty filesets. I then realized I was only seeing PUBLIC filesets. Changed the drop down to MySets and clicked search. Then I could see the empty file sets and select them individually and delete one at a time.
Seems that maybe the filter should include an option for ALL Sets.
However, now that I am aware of this 'default' behavior, its quite easy to manage my filesets and membership.
