Like many of the modern IDE’s and code editors, an option to place multiple edit cursors on multiple lines with the same type of command (notes, effect commands etc.) we can type to have multiple values changed at the same time.
The idea can be explored further to quantize the multi edit points to beats, bars etc. and automatically place multi edit points to every beat, bar or line on a single pattern, loop region, track etc. and type in the magic value that governs them all.
