I have Aperture 3.2.4.  I am working on a project with about 1300 photos.  Somehow I now have duplicates ("-Version 2") of every photo.  Problem is that some of the version 2's I crated intetntionally while editing originals.  Others have just appeared (though I am sure I did something to create them).  I want to delete the most recent "-Version 2" without having to go one-by-one.  Cannot seem to sort by the creation date of the version.  Tried Duplicate Annihalator but it tagged as duplicates many version 1 and version 2 pairs so is not reliable (there are many photos that were taken in rapid fire succession that now have duplicates of each.

    If you add the column last modifed date to the list view you could then first narrow the display down to all versions with version 2 in their name and then sort on last modified date.


    That might do what you need. There is no creation date for a version unfortunately as far as I can see.

    Thank you for the advice.  I learned to use the search function.  Searched for "Version 2" and then was able to sort by badge type.  The version 2's with a badge indicating that the photo had been edited were ones I intentional ly crated.  All other we're the duplicates I did not want and we're able to be removed from the library
