Is there a way to delete all in the dialog boxes?

If I have a sketch with 20 parts, such as an imported DXF and I want to make an extruded surface from the sketch, I have to click each sketch part.  

If I update the DXF for some reason, I have to delete all the previous sketch parts before I can begin selecting the new sketch parts.  

Is there a way to remove all in the chamfer, fillet, extrude and other dialogs?

    I believe the @a_elias is asking how to bulk clear existing selections from existing features. Is that correct?

    So to clear the highlighted area:-
    Just left click on any white area beside your model and then hit the space bar it will clear all those selections.
    @Jake_Rosenfeld Thanks for suggesting that design book, now we have the correct lingo we can suggest  it's not the user's fault for not knowing, it's the software's fault for lacking "indicators" for the "affordances" in some of the UX :-)

    You can clear selection by right clicking in the graphics area and choosing "Clear selection"
    MB - I make FeatureScripts: view FS (My FS's have "Official" beside them)

    @MBartlett21 Thanks :+1:
    I tend to zone out half way through reading the context sensitive menu items so probably miss more than I should.  That being so a "clear all" icon in the feature dialogue would be more natural in my opinion.

    you have to have the selection input box as the focus, especially when the dialoge has more than one selection set. 

    So you don't need to select white space.
