Question Deleting multiple lines of text in Memos?

Please Login to Remove!

How do you delete multiple lines of text in Memopad on an 8700g. I've been doing it line by line but I know there's an easy way. Thanks-

Hold down the ALT key and scroll - that should allow you to select multiple lines of text..

That just pages down for me in memopad. I need to select hundreds of lines to delete them. I had a syncing problem with pocketmac and ical that resulted in hundreds of so-called "memos" in memopad. Any other ideas?

Sorry - there is a way to delete all of the memos, but only with Desktop Manager on a PC....

No other ideas...

Hold down the SHIFT key & scroll up/down. Should select text, making deletion a lot easier.

ALT just scrolls down.
