is there a script or a way to purge unused keywords?

Hi

is there a script or a way to purge all the unused keywords from the catalog ?


i imported some photos and after i deleted them , but in the catalog i have lots of unused keywords

delete them manually it's boring because there a lot

i would be really great a script or (i don't know if there is a way ) to remove/purge all the un-used keyword with 1 click

a good dam software should have this feature

thanks

I assume you mean Catalog Labels?

You can try Find empty catalog labels
I think it will work with PSu, but I have not tried it myself.

mantras,

Did a bit of testing and the repo script does not work, for various reasons. Most important one is that it looks for *all* empty labels, not just in the Keywords / Miscellaneous category.

So I made a q&d script which should work (did a quick test and it didn't do anything horrible with my data :wink: ).
It does not ask any questions, but will delete all the entries in 'Miscellaneous' that have no images attached.
Download the attached file and then open and run it in the scripter.
