I think a really useful function would be to Select All messages (eg. in the email SPAM folder, to delete them at once). I think this could be implemented, following the UI guidelines, in the pulley-menu of every folder.

edit retag flag offensive close delete



Same as: https://together.jolla.com/question/4513/multiple-selection-in-mail-program/ for email messages, editing to leave only SMS option.

If the only action available for multiple message is to delete them, the menu should be directly "delete all"

@VDVsx Thank you. I think this is a beaviour most people expect to find system-wide, like ctrl+x for cut, ctrl+c for copy, ctrl+v for paste, etc. Do you think it's ok to submit a new question (feature request) about it?

@TeHeR In principle I agree with you, but in this scenario I think I'd prefer a two moves procedure: Select All, then Delete, rather than a single gesture (too easy to delete all of your messages by mistake, even with the remorse timer).
