The time may come that you need to delete files from your Video/Image Bin either because you've decided you have way too many files loaded, a bunch of broken links, or you need to remove one-time-use files.

If you are using a Mac...

Press the Command key and click on thumbnails to select multiple thumbnails one at a time. If you need to select a range of thumbnails, press Command+Shift while clicking on the first and last slide of the range to select all of them. Press Command+Delete to delete the thumbnails. If you need to delete all of the files in a playlist or one of the three main bins, you can use Command+A to select all of the thumbnails. You can also right-click and select "Delete" from the context menu to delete an individual thumbnail.

If you want to start over completely with your Video/Image Bin you can delete the playlist file that contains all of your Video/Image Bin data. You will want to close ProPresenter before doing this and be really sure you want to get rid of everything in your Video/Image Bin.

  1. Open a new Finder window.
  2. Press Command+Shift+G and enter ~/Library/Application Support/RenewedVision. Press 'Go'.
  3. Open the ProPresenter folder for the version you are using.
  4. Locate the Media.pro#pl file for your version. The # will be the version number of ProPresenter.

When you relaunch the program your Video/Image Bin will be completely empty.

If you are using Windows...

Press the Control key and click on thumbnails to select multiple thumbnails one at a time. If you need to select a range of thumbnails, press Control+Shift while clicking on the first and last slide of the range to select all of them. Press Control+Delete to delete the thumbnails. If you need to delete all of the files in a playlist or one of the three main bins, you can use Control+A to select all of the thumbnails. You can also right-click and select "Delete" from the context menu to delete an individual thumbnail.

If you want to start over completely with your Video/Image Bin you can delete the playlist file that contains all of your Video/Image Bin data. You will want to close ProPresenter before doing this and be really sure you want to get rid of everything in your Video/Image Bin.

  1. Click on Start>All Programs>ProPresenter 4 (or ProPresenter 5)>ProPresenter AppData Folder.
  2. In ProPresenter 4, open the "Playlists" folder and delete media.pro4pl.
  3. In ProPresenter 5, delete media.pro5pl. It's in the main directory.

When you relaunch the program your Video/Image Bin will be completely empty.
