Select and delete multiple text styles
Would be really helpful to select multiple text style and delete them instead of deleting one by one
The following workaround worked for me on Mac / Sketch and is suitable for projects that don't use a global styleguide. It only takes 2-3 minutes:
1. Create a new, empty styleguide in Zeplin. See: https://support.zeplin.io/en/articles/2886183-creating-a-styleguide
2. Go back to your project in Zeplin. Go to the "Styleguide" Tab of your project (in the top Tab bar, located next to the "Dashboard" Tab).
3. Open the Text Style Catalog (on the left side bar menu) and go to the "..." (the three dots/more icon) on the right side. Select "Move text styles to Styleguide". Select the styleguide you just created.
4. Your local styleguide should now contain no more text styles :).
5. You can now delete the Styleguide you created to "dump" your Text Styles.
6. Go to the Zeplin Menu Bar and choose "Help/Reset suggested text styles".
6. Open your Sketch File and select "Plugins/Zeplin/Export text styles" in the Menu Bar.
You will now have a fresh, updated text style catalog in Zeplin. Voila :).
I know this is by no means an elegant solution, but its better than trying to fix the hundreds of text styles that you need to create if you use Sketch. Figma handles text styles way better in my opinion. I have > 600 text styles in my Sketch document (example: body_1/1_left/primary_color/bold) so this workaround saves me a lot of time.

Can't believe how miserable this works at the moment... Isuper frustrating how much time it takes to do this manually and it makes the whole "styleguide" section useless for me.
I must admit that at the moment, styles are about as useful as a chocolate tea pot! There is nothing remotely straightforward about them at all. Every time I've wanted to use them, I've just wasted my time.
Seriously guys... This is really ridiculous. Also, renaming a text style in Sketch leaves no option to "update" the existing text style title with a new name (so the "workaround" of that is the removal of all old ones to upload the new ones or manual rename - which i fine when you have 7 text styles and horrible when working with a 100+ text styles). Would be appreciated to include all of this in the next update.

This is needed for global style guides especially, how is this not the highest of priorities? Please add this feature ASAP.

+1k text styles, I need this feature
I need this feature.
I am currently vetting Zeplin to decide whether to use, and the inability to delete multiple text styles and colors at once is a dealbreaker for us. There is also ZERO documentation about how this works or why a bunch of colors that aren't even in my document are showing up.
Zeplin, please. Enough of this
The code exports are unusable too
I'd LOVE being able to do this. It is really annoying and time consuming to do it one by one
Exported an updated set of type styles from Sketch to Zeplin = 300+ new type styles. I am currently deleting one by one. Any progress on this request?
I already contacted support for this. I did a Sketch Text Styles export to the Zeplin's project local styleguide. There are now 400 text styles, most of them I did not intend to put there. But I can only delete one text style at a time and I have to confirm the action in a dilaog. This is pretty much unusable.
Please let us delete multiple or all text styles at once.
