Delete all of a specific fact type

Is there a way to delete all facts of a specific type without using SQLite? I’ve received some GEDCOM files that were apparently created by FTM and they have a lot of _UPD and Race custom facts I’d like to delete en-masse.

Since these are custom facts rather than built-in facts such as Birth and Death, you can just delete them from the Fact Type List. You will get a warning that the Fact Type is in use, and you tell it to delete the Fact Type anyway.

If it were built-in facts that you wanted to delete en-masse, it would not be so easy.

Go to Tools, Remove a fact from everyone, to delete them by fact type.
