By the gods, we need this function.
Dearest Workflowy team,
You've truly done a stupendous job over the last year. And your most recent new feature on mobile — *swipe* to share / duplicate / delete — is good! But it's a veritable Laurel without a Hardy, a Harry in search of a Sally. It needs the counterpart of multi-select in order to be truly usable on mobile.
As is, it's waaaaaaaaaay too tedious and time-consuming for me to delete (or otherwise bulk-edit) bullets on mobile, so I save that work for when I'm in front of a computer. Not to get too into-the-weeds, but this makes for a cluttered mobile experience if, as I do, the user wants to leave completed items visible for some interstitial period leading up to bulk deletion.
Another way to look at this: By creating the new left-swipe options, you've added a step to the process of deleting bullets; what previously required one gesture, now requires two. And though sharing and duplicating bullets are both valuable features, I'd argue that deleting is even more important, and therefore deserving the most straightforward procedure.
But hey, gimme multi-select functionality and consider the scales balanced.
Do this, and I will toast to your good fortune.
