I think the OP was asking about mass deleting all unused expressions. The TGT plugin (yes, it's an additional cost, but hey, so is PL [which can be 2x the cost of TGT]) does this handily. For deleting a small number of unused expressions (and you have to hope you haven't used it), you can do it in the Expression tool but TGT is better.

I have nothing against anyone wanting to add TG Tools or Patterson plug-ins. Just made mention that they are not free. Just like everything Finale a plug-in can not do what Finale can not do. And, you can delete Expressions in the Expressions menu.
However, TG Tools is not even in the same zip code as Perfect Layout and can not be compared.
David why do I sense this hostility form you. The two are not comparable. They accomplish different things. You made mention that PL was not free for a whatever reason. It wasn't even part of the conversation. I use TG Tools. I use NP4. I use Patterson and I use Perfect Layout. They all do what I want but they are all different.
No hostility at all. I gave you a compliment and agreed with your comment.
I am, however, struck by how often and fervently you feel the need to bring up PL, but never the cost. Yet you specifically (and correctly) pointed out that TGT costs. I stated in my first comment that this functionality (deleting expressions en masse) is for the full version of TGT. That should have implied a cost associated with it. So in fairness, I also pointed out the PL is not free. That's all. I'm glad whenever anyone gives a shoutout to independent developers, including Patterson, JW, TGT etc.
Interesting…and sad. I think Tobias might want to update things. I rarely use TGT and even more rarely, that feature, but a few things are very useful on occasion and it would be a shame for it to languish.
