How to delete all checked items from a checklist


I am wondering if there is a way to delete all checked items in a checklist at once.

When I use a checklist as a to do list, I keep adding to the same list, while checking of a lot of items as well. Once checked, these items are redundant to my list but there are so many checked items, I do not want to delete them one by one. And I don't want to delete the whole checklist because of the to do's that I haven't done yet.

todo lists suck because they never end and you never feel you completed them.

When using Trello a better approach is to make a card for each 'todo' item.  use checklists for items that have sub-tasks or need more breakdown.  Then when a to-do card is finished, move it to a DONE list.

it's very satisfying to see the done list grow.   and you're not faced with the ever ending card filled with an ever expanding checklist.

@tiny Vandenberghe is the "hide completed items" feature not adequate for this?

@Iain Dooley: Whit normal lists it is, but with a todo list, after a while, it is not very informative to know that you have checked 135 items of the 141 on your checklist.
