Bulk Ops Suggestion

Hello,

Under “Bulk Ops” --> “Change Attributes” the labels cannot be adjusted en masse – only the comments. Often times we are importing KML/KMZ polygons which may have a lot of metadata in the label field and that can be time-consuming to go through each individually and erase the text. The problem is that the sidebar or list of polygons stretches out due to the enormous amount of text in those fields. I appreciate that I can choose to hide or not display the labels so they don’t overlap the imagery in the working window, but it is a wishlist item to be able to mass erase them and clean up the sidebar when working with numerous polygons.

If I'm missing something simple please let me know, but otherwise I just wanted to point out something that could be improved. In general I'm very pleased with caltopo so thank you all for providing user-friendly GIS tools.

    Hi Arick,

    Thanks for the input! We are working on a large set of improvements right now to many aspects of the site. I'll be sure to include your request in our weekly discussion, but no guarantees on when or if we'll implement it!

    Thanks,
