Users with editor role not able to delete assets


Just noticing that in the latest perch admin I have set up, a user who has the role of an Editor cannot delete assets. However the delete button is there as an Admin. I'm deleting assets by

Assets > Add/Edit > Click on asset > click delete button

I have selected the manage assets and upload assets checkboxes within the roles area for Editor, is there anything else I should've selected?

No, that's correct. Only the primary admin can delete assets. It shouldn't be necessary - they're automatically cleaned up once no content is using them.

Thanks Drew that's ok. They've uploaded quite a few images all at once and needed to remove some as things were getting confusing. I might just make them an admin for a short time.

Would be good to be able to give editors control over removing assets as well.

Thanks for your help
