    Paste entry to entire column in a bin?

    Hi forum,

    I could be dreaming this, but I swear I once found a way to paste a single value to an entire column in a bin, without having to go clip by clip.  So for example: say that I hypothetically have a bin with about 60 music tracks in it, and in my "Description" column I want it to say "Wednesday" next to every clip.  How can I do that without pasting the word in the "Description" column next to every clip?

     

    thx for your help team

    Yep. I have to relearn this every time I do it.

    I think you just select all the clips you want to change, hover over the column and right click. You then get a dialog something akin to "Modify Column". You select that and follow the dialog to enter the info into the column.

    Let em know if that helps. If not, I'll go to a system and give you a better recipe.

    What Todd said: Select all clips in the bin. Right-click or CTRL-click on the place in the bin where the entry for the clips should be and choose "Set Column XYZ for selected clips".
