Modify multiple combining items

Use the Global Edit command to make specific changes to the properties of all or multiple items in a combining job at one go. This way, you can save time, as you do not need to change the properties of each item individually.

  1. In the Combining dialog box, click the Combining ribbon tab.
  2. In the drop-down menu, select Global Edit > Global Edit.

    The Combining Global Edit Filters dialog box opens.

  3. To only modify specific types of items, select a filter type in the Type list, and click Select.
  4. In the Filter dialog box, click the arrow buttons to move the items whose properties you want to modify to the Included list.
  5. Click OK.
    To further limit the items to be modified, repeat steps 3 to 5 for all necessary filter types.
  6. At the bottom of the Combining Global Edit Filters dialog box, OK.
  7. In the Global Edit dialog box, select check boxes next to the properties that you want to update.

    You can also use the Un-check All and Check Changed Fields buttons to quickly clear or select check boxes.

  8. Modify the selected properties in the Global Edit dialog box according to your needs.

    For example, you can change the category of the items by selecting an option in the Category list, or type a comment for the items.

  9. Click Update.

The Global Edit dialog box closes. The changes you made to the combining item properties are updated to the Combining dialog box.
