  • Fixed: Improvements and bug fixes based on feedback in the nightly channel on Discord (January 15th, 2024).

    • Shift-U triggers underline instead of capital ‘U’.
    • Alt-Shift-Click not working on Windows.
    • When in multi-select mode, simple click on additional item adds it to selection (not sure about this one yet, might be changed back again).
    • Other minor things.

Bulk operations

With this nightly release, we’re introducing bulk operations for objects. You can now select multiple objects and perform actions such as “Delete”, “Edit tags”, or “Edit collections” on them. To streamline this operations together with operations on blocks, we’ve created a new “Editor menu” that combines all operations on selection of blocks and/or objects.

Editor menu

Objects that are linked via a block can be selected by selecting the block as usual. The difference is that now all possible actions for the object are also available in the editor menu, such as tagging, changing the object type or changing the view.

To start a selection of multiple objects in a data view, simply hold Meta-Shift (Mac) or Alt-Shift (Windows) and click on the objects you want to select. You can also enter multi-select mode via the object menu “Select multiple objects”.

Editor menu

You can than add additional items by clicking the checkbox in the top right corner (or again using Meta-Shift/Alt-Shift while clicking anywhere on the object).

Editor menu

Here’s a list of the new bulk operations that are now available for objects:

  • Bulk tagging
  • Bulk changing the object type
  • Bulk editing of collections (only possible for same-type selections)
  • Moving/adding a selection of blocks and/or objects to some other location (basically to the blocks property of another object)
  • Bulk change of the view of an object block
  • Bulk deletion of objects

Editor menu

These new operations open some new possibilities when working with a block selection: You can edit tags on a selection of text blocks or move a selection of blocks to another object. You can also change the view of a selection of object blocks to a different view.

Please report any issues that might occur while testing this new feature. Looking forward to your feedback!
