Deleting single files from Trash

Can I permanently delete selected files from Trash? Right click only gives me the ‘Empty Trash’ option.

No, Trash is currently an all or nothing deal. If you don’t want to permanently delete everything in there, you could create a new root-level folder for your maybes and drag the files from the Trash to the new folder, then empty the Trash of whatever is safe to delete. I keep an “Archive” folder in some projects to hold stuff I think I don’t want any longer but am not quite ready to ditch completely. I’ve read a lot of comments from other writers who do something similar–a displaced scenes folder or a “hang onto this” bin, somewhere to keep files out of the way without consigning them to the Trash.

Thanks Jennifer, what an excellent idea! :smiley:
