Selecting multiple records to edit and then clicking the 'Edit' button results in a page with one empty input row showing.

To recreate:
"Select" a table (Click 'select')
Tick multiple records or 'Whole result'
Click 'Edit' under 'Selected'

    This allows updating all the rows to the same value. The form should be filled with (original). To edit individual values, just Ctrl+click on them in the select table.

    I assume you mean it allows updating specific columns to the same value in all selected rows.

    This is misleading and should be considered for revision.

    Blanket replacing data in selected rows is not what you expect when choosing to edit existing data. Not only this, but this feature is completely unnecessary for a multitude of reasons - and is what "SQL Command" is for...

    It's very useful, I use it more often than individual edits.

    Then maybe you should revise your schema. If you need to do such blanket replacements on a regular basis through an administration tool, you probably should not be using a database to directly store that information in the first place.

    The point still stands; If considered necessary, at least the label for this so-called feature is misleading.
