Hi!

I am not sure whether this exists (but I could not find it), but I would like to see multiple select for the list.

What I want to be enabled is this:
1. start scanning and wait until it is finished
2. sort files according to similarity
3. click on the first file, SHIFT-click on the n-th file => select all files between those
4. click on the mark => marks all selected (then use right-click and delete the files)
  OR
4. click on delete => deletes all selected (without having to "mark" them first)


To be honest, I was very much surprised that this does not work already!

One further wish, is that better tagged files always go to the same side - right for example, because pressing SPACE marks the left file.

Better tagged means:
1. it is better to have a tag then not to have it
2. it is better to have shorter tags, to avoid tags such as in the following example:

less-than-ideal situation:
filename: KUKI Ivan Kukolj - Beograd U Noci.mp3
Title: KUKI Ivan Kukolj - 2007 - Cao Ljubavi - 06 - Beograd U Noci - yucafe
Artist: yucafe
Album: yucafe
Genre: yucafe
Year: yucafe
(most other tags filled with "yucafe" - actually it is www . yucafe . com, but no links are allowed in messages)

ideal tags:
filename: KUKI Ivan Kukolj - Beograd U Noci.mp3
Title: Beograd U Noći
Artist: KUKI Ivan Kukolj
Album: Ćao Ljubavi
Track #: 06
Comment: yucafe
(other tags are not really important anyway)

Of course, there should be a lower limit for length of tags, lets say 5-10 (most artist names and song names are 2-3 words). Any tags under this length could be considered semi-missing.

I could help implementing these recommendations.

OK, I will have to wait until multiple selection is enabled somehow. I cannot remove few thousand duplicates by hand.

excellent engine, but could you show the duplicate one group (non-recurring pairs, as now) and add the ability to mark duplicates to delete by checkbox
sorry for my English
