There are many photos in my Aperture library that have two masters, each one jpeg and one raw. I'd like to delete one of both, but I didn't even found a way of splitting them.

Is it before or after you have made any editing of the pictures? – Johan Karlsson Jan 18 '12 at 16:59

Why don't you use a smart folder? Set file type to RAW, and then you can delete the files. Its however not ideal.

Not completely the solution I hoped for, but certainly better than nothing. – Max Ried Apr 30 '12 at 10:25
yeah i know :( i just switched of jpegs, so either i shoot RAW or JPEG....Depending on your camera you can also choose to store small JPEG + RAW. – Rogier Apr 30 '12 at 10:35

Try deleting version or delete master and all versions, however, back up the photos you want to keep first.
