The thing I don't like in the new iTunes it that you can no longer mark your Podcast or other shows as "read". I follow a ridiculous amount of iTunes U and Podcasts so I hate all the dots both on my Mac and iPod.

Is this really no longer possible?

Mike, ESC!Cast Network said...

@rednicolas - I'm updated to 9.1 and I've got a "Mark as Watched" for video podcast episodes and I've got "Mark as Played" for audio episodes.

I do NOT have an option to mark ALL episodes as watched or played at once though.

You would have to select all, then choose Marked as Watched/Played.

@Mike - I should have been more precise ... I know the option is still there if you go one by one or select all the new ones and then mark them as played or watch.

My work-flow was just an easy cmd+a and then a mark as played and done. Now it's really "hurting" and taking "much" more time.

I'm just wondering if you can bring this back as the function is still there and an overall mark as played was possible before.
