Campbell and I started a patch for a similar feature: if you click in
a field and drag up or down, it selects other fields that will be
updated at the same time. It supports dragging left/right to change
numerical values, and text entry with the keyboard for numbers and
strings. The current behaviour is to apply the same value to all
selected fields. This could be changed to maintain ratios for
numerical fields.


This method finds fields by panel layout, so there are no required
changes to RNA.

Any thoughts?
