Assuming you mean Catalog Labels: have a look at http://repository.idimager.com/cgi-bin/ ... 2aebfa959b
Make sure you make a backup of your catalog before using scripts like this!

Are you talking about removing unassigned catalog labels? In theory, you could:

1) Write a custom script that does that. (Check first if such a script doesn't already exist in the on line resource repository.)

2) Save all your image metadata after enabling the writing of ICS, then re-import all the images (with ICS reading turned on) in a fresh new catalog. (Don't forget to do a catalog backup first; and, just in case you employ versioning, keep in mind that the ICS reading might not correctly recreate the versioning info - IIRC, there's an open Mantis ticket about that.)

Hello Mantras,

There is a somewhat hepfull discussion of not-wanted labels and keywords in here http://forum.idimager.com/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=23731
Those two scripts helped me a lot

Regards, Harald
