Asset selection

On pages containing a Search component such as the Assets or the content Search pages, you can select entities to perform operations on them.

To select entities, you can:

  • Use the mouse to click and select.
  • Use drag and select.
  • Use the shift key.
  • Use Select all.

A selection basket groups the selected entities and lets you perform mass operations on them. The selection basket is specific to a page, a collection, or a block. For example, you can select entities on the Create page and have a different selection on the Content page. All selection baskets expire after 24 hours unless you change them manually.
