  • once done selecting you can apply bulk edit to the entire group of items at once;

When you choose Divi Bulk Editing and Multiselect, you can work with the design changes. To choose the settings you want to apply for the selected group of modules, you need to go on the settings modal where Divi will automatically display a list of shared settings. While modifying the design you can see the changes on all selected items instantly. This is how you update different items applying the same changes at once. For example, you can add a background color to a Text Module, Blurb Module and/or a Section all at the same time. Go ahead and try it!

3. Drag, Drop, Copy, Paste & Delete options

Divi Bulk Editing and Multiselect are not only useful for applying the same changes to the different items at once, but also lets us move them (drag and drop) to different location when selected. Once you select multiple modules, rows or sections you can move them where you want to be and Divi will automatically put them all together in the same location. You can also easily copy and paste or delete the selection instead of having to deal with them one by one.

4. Cmd&Ctrl keys for better page structure understanding

Using Cmd or Ctrl keys is a great way to better understand the structure of your web page. Sometimes small modules might be difficult to find using Divi’s minimal building interface, but if you hold down Cmd and Ctrl keys you can quickly locate the outlines of all modules, rows and sections. This gives you a clear picture of your entire page and you can see how all the individual pieces of your website fit together.

We think building a website with Divi just got more attractive with Divi Bulk Editing and Multiselect! These features can really help to perform quickly and leave you more time for other details of your website to work on. For example, content writing.
