Edit multiple input tools simultanously

Highlighted

I have 20 input tools that I want to edit simultanously. Attached is a screenshot showing me selecting two input tools and trying to change the delimeter setting to ; for both of them at the same time, but it even though I select both tools at the same time it only shows me settings for the last tool I clicked. Any ideas?

@PeterPetersen,

 

I don't believe there's a way to do so all at once within Designer directly. However, what you could potentially do is open your .yxmd in a text editor (i.e. Notepad) and do a find/replace, finding '<Delimeter>,</Delimeter>' and replacing it with the same thing except with whatever delimiter character to use.

Thanks, is the best way to edit multiple tools at the same time, specially if you have to set up a workflow with hundreds of tools
