I have a lot of queries that have to be duplicated depending on the user context.

My typical route is to create the base set finalise it then duplicate all of the items.

Where my pain arises is when I need to add something across all of these queries (eg auto update conditions).

If I have 15 queries then this quickly becomes a PITA.

I'd like to be able to select multiple items and then add a value to the settings across them all, it would save me a huge amount of time and it would reduce my potential for errors (or speed up the rate at which I can create very consistent errors...)

The whole area of stacking similar queries / sharing settings across similar queries / updating similar queries ... could lead to significant productivity improvement.

Yes... that would be very useful.

Perhaps if the Query in the selection tree on the left could decompose down to the different sections

Code: Select allQuery Name
| Panel Operations
| - top panel
| --Operation 1
| --Operation 2
| --Right Aligner
| Operations with records
| AutoRefresh
| -Processes
| --Process 1
| -Business Objects
| --BO1
| --BO2


If copy paste and delete could be available on this tree it would make things much faster to deal with.

Actually the more I think about it you could migrate most of the functionality to the selection tree and make the edits there.

BO
Attribute Name
- Attribute Type drop down selector
- Calculated checkbox
- Required checkbox
- etc

Then use the panel where the attributes are for the more complex items like CSS script.

This would then fix the issue of Java errors when the bottom right hand window of attribute details becomes out of sync with the middle panel on the screen and would put everything one to two clicks away instead of the sometimes four clicks (I think) to get to a top panel toolbar for example.
