It would be great to be able to edit multiple events. Especially, if wanting to add a tag or label to a group of events instead of having to do it one by one. Thanks for considering!

If you select all of the events you want to change, and then right click, you can then change the label, add or remove tags to the events as a group.

I know some people would like to see that behaviour in the Inspector too, but it can get pretty tricky when they each have different values... the default behaviour is to keep everything blank, but in the case of tags, when you type in a tag, is that meant to be an addition, or replacement?

I find the right click menu much cleaner for this behaviour.

Thanks for the tip and for explaining your reasoning. I've seen other applications (e.g. Leap) show tags common to all selected entities. Any tags then added are additions to existing tags. This way common tags can be seen easily and one can quickly determine if a tag needs to be added to the group or not.
