If you are displaying designs or images from Right Panel as "Thumbnails" or as "Dense Thumbnails", there is a check box shown at the left side of each thumbnail in its yellow area. Use this check box to mark some of the files while browsing through your designs or images, and then use "Select Marked Files" command in "Right Panel" menu to select the marked files in Right Panel. Finally, use e.g. "Delete Files" command from "Right Panel" menu to delete the selected (marked) files from your hard disk, or use any other command applicable for selected files (e.g. "Cut Files to Clipboard" and paste them into some other folder). This new mark feature allows you to sort designs easily.
