I would appreciate someone telling me how to delete a media category in FTM 2012. I have several that are empty as I have created new categories for them.
Thank you, Marion.

Open the media workspace

In the RH editing panel go to the categories window and click on the edit button

You can then edit and delete categories

See the attachment.

The test category is a dummy category for the purposes of the screen shot

Thank you so very much, John.
KNowing this will make a huge difference to my efficiency in putting together a book containing all my data (done on FTM). When I first set up the categories I did not fully understand how to organise them. Since then I have learned but have empty ones that are very annoying as they make the list longer than it needs to me.
With every good wish,
Marion.

This works for custom categories but I believe it does not work for the predefinded categories.
