Question: How to delete a whole bunch of iMessages?

I couldn't figure out if there's a way to delete a whole bunch of iMessages on iMac at the same time. I need to delete a lot of iMessages from one sender but I could only delete one at a time which is extremely time consuming. I don't want to delete the whole thread.


Thanks.

iMac, OS X El Capitan (10.11.1)

Hi,


Shift Click works.

CMD and Click works to leave some of the items in between.
