Multi-select elements

Within Webflow Designer's canvas, add the ability to select multiple elements for bulk actions such as changing the class, editing styling and settings, copying, and delete.

    Definitely a feature that would be awesome!

    Really?

    I have to select and apply classes one by one, please, please Webflow, I just started using the platform and this one feels basic 🙏

    This is silly now, its basic stuff to multiple select and edit. COME ON webflow

    I believe this has been requested since 2014. It would be great if you could edit when multiple items are selected but as MVP even if it was just to move and delete items that would be a huge improvement.

    I have carpal tunnel. The absence of this feature forces me to repeat actions ad nauseum when trying to e.g. customize a template. This is a dealbreaker.

    This would be great for editing classes within sections!

    This would speed up workflow so much!

    Completely agree with everyone here, it may be tough to implement but this feature would be incredibly useful and a strong competitive edge over new tools such as Wix's EditorX.

    Love the platform, keep doing an incredible job.

    I ran into this as a new user, I can understand the limitation but it would be nice to grab more than one layer to sort or copy paste as your building. Only thing I found useful to copy and paste more than one thing is just putting everything in more organized, and utilize sections better. Then use div blocks for things needed to be "grouped" so can grab those groups at least.

    I thought it was just my noobness, being unable to multi copy lol

    Guess not!

    I / We need this. Please! :)

    I mean as an engineer I can see the moderate complexity of doing his. Traversal of Graph roots comprised of potentially thousands of attributes is difficult, but there are algorithms designed to move fast even due to the NP completeness. If I can do simulated annealing and heuristics in near real time with Timescaledb streams then you can do this. I can tell you that on considerations is: pasting over large components between screens is clunky and slow currently. But you got that to work, so why not this? It's just a [potentially very large] array of objects with many attributes and children, after all.

    Another idea, why not [instead of using browser memory] make multi-selects stream the data to something like a distributed pub/sub socket cluster? If you did it that way, you could parallelize the operations to multiple in-memory caches. This way the user doesn't have to feel the burn. This is a once-in-a-while type operation, not a steady stream, so it is perfect for serverless too. I mean, I don't care cause I have 128G of RAM in this box, but a lot of users will likely care about it since they won't crash their browser doing a copy and paste op.

    Anyhow, you guys do great work... don't let us down on this one. I'd be happy to help if you need. ;)

    Can somebody from Webflow give some feedback on this? How is this still not implemented? Feels like stone age to single select and apply on every element.

    Having a multiple select function to be able to apply classes to multiple elements all at once would be a god send. Feels very odd to not be able to shift click multiple objects on a screen.
