You can select multiple documents and change one or more properties at the same time. If the selected documents have different values for the same property, the property value appears blank in the property cell or dialog box. Entering new text or selecting a new value applies the property value to all the selected documents.
Warning! Be careful when changing a property for multiple documents that already contain values for the same property. The new values you enter for the property overwrite any existing values for all selected documents.
Assign Checkbox Properties
Properties such as roles, play modes, and remediation levels allow you to assign multiple values. The available values for these properties appear in a checkbox list. You assign property value(s) by selecting one or more checkboxes.
If you select multiple documents for property assignment, the checkboxes for the property values can have any of three initial states:
You can check or clear any checkbox, regardless of its initial state, to assign the value to or remove it from ALL of the selected documents. If you do not change the state of a partially selected checkbox, the assignment of the corresponding value remains unchanged (assigned to some, but not all, of the selected documents). However, once you click a partially selected checkbox, you cannot restore it to its initial state. Therefore, when assigning property values to documents, you should select only those documents to/from which you want to add/remove the same value(s).
