I can't add much context to the question above.

My Resource Console is full of TMs I never use, that were downloaded with server-based projects or with SDL packages the clients sent me over the years.
There's a hundred of them and I don't want them to appear among my own TMs.
Deleting the actual TM copies from the directory where they are located doesn't help, they are still on the list, with an amber thunder sign.

I can only unpin or delete them individually. When I select multiple TMs, the Delete button goes grey.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

I've had the same problem. Have you asked Kilgray?

There are now so many 'little' issues with the UI, it's beginning to look like memoQ needs an overhaul... maybe by someone who actually uses it regularly.

Back when I still used memoQ (I now use Déjà Vu X3), I asked for this maybe 10 times, via support, in the memoQ mailing list, etc. … but they never listened. I think its IDIOTIC that you have to select them all one by one each time, especially if you need to select/deselect 30 TMs/TBs! "Refactoring" my ass.

By the time I get an answer from them to this non-urgent inquiry, I could very well delete the entries individually.
I am a MemoQ fan, but this is the stupidest thing I have to deal with.

Just sent a support request for this at https://support.kilgray.com

It's worth trying...

Just ran into this Mar 15

I couldn't understand why server TMs kept staying in the list when I selected my own computer as server. Then I discovered the pins.

Not useful at all that one can't unpin more than one at a time.

And why did the cloud TMs get pinned in the first place? I never pinned any. They shouldn't get pinned automatically because of what some PM did in their end. Pinning should be something I choose to do. It makes sense for local TMs to be pinned automatically, not remote ones.
