How do I undo copying pages?

I just copied a parent page and all it's child pages. I wish to undo this. How exactly do I delete those copied pages? There are a lot of them, so I don't want to do one by one. Thanks!

There is a hack you can use to do this.

  1. Create an empty Word document.
  2. Go to the new parent page, and in the ... Menu, select Import from Word.
  3. In the import wizard, select the option to replace all child pages.

Because the Word file is blank, it just deletes all child pages. It's strange, but it works. I have a Word doc on my desktop called "Deleter" for just this situation. 😁

If you try to delete the parent page, does it not give you the option of also deleting the child pages? Or is that yet another server feature left out of cloud?

Server has that option but cloud does not unfortunately.

Just seems like Cloud is not yet ready for prime time. So many missing features.

@maggie Welcome to the community.

If you are going to delete everything there is not currently a great way to do that in Cloud.  You can archive multiple pages at once but even then you have delete individually.  The easiest work around I have seen is to create a new space, move the pages to the space, then delete the space.  It is a few steps but beats having to click delete a hundred times.
