Profiles: Enable batch delete

For presets, it is possible to delete a group. All presets within this group will be deleted.

For profiles, I can only delete the profiles one by one. I have accidentally imported about 2000 profiles, which I would need to delete manually one by one. 3 seconds per profile to delete = 100 Minutes to delete all profiles. :-(

Please!

At the moment if I want to delete, move, export presets, I can only do it one at a time. This is really frustrating when you are trying to do a cleanup of your presets. 

In Classic you were able to move them in the directory structure. I know that now they are stored in the Cloud you can't do that any more. But there needs to be a better way to manage presets.

Can you add function so that you can more easily manage presets rather than one-by-one?

I don’t know why my request was merged into this one. My request is about managing presets. The other request is about managing profiles.

As an aside, do you actually want to delete them? Otherwise, you might just hide the groups, so they don't show in the panel but they're still available in future.

@Victoria_Bampton_Lightroom_Queen Hello Victoria. I want to delete them, not to hide. I figured out, that all presets and profiles were synced with my Lightroom mobile. It used 5 GB of my iPhone space (and I have only 64GB). And scrolling through all the presets and profiles was annoying.

Installed too many presets and profiles. And some, I imported accidentally. I want to install only those presets and profiles I use regularly.

@Victoria_Bampton_Lightroom_Queen  by the way... if the presets and profiles do not use precious iPhone space if they are hidden, it would be a great solution. But anyway... on my phone, I can only hide preset groups. I can't hide profile groups.
