Bug Description

Requesting some new functionality to "Check Library - Problems Found" function. I am currently running 4.19.0.

When reporting a large number of problems, the ability to select/deselect a group or range of listed problems to fix/delete would be very useful. Currently, you can only either mark all to delete or mark all to fix.

There are 10 categories of errors that are checked and listed. The ability to select or deselect the errors in one category only would be useful (especially when there are a large number of errors and you don't want to fix them all.

Requested functionality:

1. The ability to select/deselect all errors listed in a category. This could be accomplished by having a checkbox on each of the categories.

2) The ability to select/deselect lists/ranges of errors listed in a category using the cntrl-left mouse click/shift left mouse click. (Same as in the Calibre main title window.)

Changing the component for this bug.

I did the first suggestion: adding a check box to each deletable category line. The second suggestion is more work than I care to do.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.

Thank you. Calbre is an incredibly fully-featured tool.
