The workflow is identical when deleting variants from either Catalog or Sessions Collections (i.e. Folders in the Library other than Albums).
When you want to delete specific variants of an image, leaving at least one variant of the image in the Collection, Capture One will delete those selected from that Collection and in every other location. The source image and its variant or variants located elsewhere (e.g., in Albums, Favorites, and Collections) are not deleted.
Note that the delete command can be undone (Edit -> Undo Delete Variants).
- Select the Collection.
- From the browser, select the variants of an image to delete (leaving at least one variant of the image in Collection), then choose Image -> Delete (Variants) or press Cmd+backspace, press X in the toolbar or cursor tool. Note that there is no warning dialog displayed.
- Selected variants are deleted immediately.
