Summary0007773: Possibility to apply text property changes to multiple textframes in a group or selection
Descriptionfor now it is not possible to change text / style related settings for more than one textframe at a time. This means, that you have to do the same task (i.e. aplying a style to a textframe in a table with 50 textframes) over and over again.

as soon as there is more than ein object selected, the text pallete in the properties menu is deactivated. - same for group objects.
TagsNo tags attached.

I'd also like to be able to do this. Eg. Select 20 text frames and change the text colour once.

Specific use case: I'm working on a program for a play, and as each of the 35 actors submit an updated biography I colour their text green so I can easily see that it's updated and not just a text placeholder. But now when I'm done, I have to change all the text colours back to black one at a time.
