Tags - delete multiples from library?
Is there an easy way to delete multiple tags all at once? I mean delete the tags completely from library. I know how how to delete a specific tag from multiple books in one fell swoop. What I want to do is completely get rid of a great many tags.
The only delete-tag option I see is to select a tag in the tag browser and delete it. I haven't been able to select multiple tags and zap them in a single click.
Right now, I'm looking at 61 tags in the tag browser of my fiction library; at most, I want to keep only five of those. That's 56 tags of clutter I want to clear away. Those junk tags imported with books added as a group.
Trying to clean up tags with a one-by-one deletion method is sure not how I'd like to spend my time. This is just one library. I have others with junk tags as well. Can anyone offer a relief method of deleting multiple tags at once?
Please note: I am no whiz in Calibre and for sure don't understand it all. I muddle along. So I need detailed instructions for any method which isn't menu-driven or otherwise relatively simple. I *can* follow good instructions, though, even if I don't understand what I'm doing. :-))
I did poke through preferences, hoping to see a place where all tags are listed and could be multiply selected, but if it's there, I didn't find it.
Any help would be appreciated.
Running Calibre 0.8.41, Mac OS 10.7.3

On the Tag Browser, right-click on "Tags" then select "Manage Tags". There, you can select multiple tags (not sure what the Mac equivalent is but on Windows, it's usually Shift to select consecutive and Ctrl to select individual items), then click on the button with green recycle icon to delete.
