Working with many layers brings often the problem to change the style for more than one or two layers. And often it is useful to have the same style for different layers. To do this one after the other take lot of time. So it woruld be very nice and efficient to select those layers, open the change style dialog and change the style for all selected layers.
But not only have the option for the general style but also for the color theming (when all selected layers have a identical attribut).

    Did ou try copy/paste styles ?
    I can paste a style to several selected layers unless there is an incompatibility between FeatureSchemas.

    Thanks Michael!
    I thought it only works for one layer a time.

    But another thing is to do other thing concurrently:
    - working with attributes (e.g. calculating a new attribute with the attribute calculator, add/delete attributes)
    - working with features (drawing, adapting, deleting, moving)
    Is it realistic?

    Hi,

    I don't understand what you mean by concurrently. Can you give more details about your use case ?

    You can also ask questions on the user forum (openjump-users@googlegroups.com) or on the developper forum (jump-pilot-devel@lists.sourceforge.net).
    And please, make a new feature request so that I can close this one.

    Thanks,

    Michaël

    Hello,

    one use case could be:

    e.g. having a couple of layers which describing different landscape elements. Than I get a WMS map or an aerial image as a background map and I realized that I have to correct the position and orientation of all landscape layers.
    Actual I have to correct every single layer...but it should be more efficient to select all layers and move them a distance along an angle into the correct postion

    When You write that this could be realistic to program such function I will open a new feature request.
    Anyway You can close this thread.

    Kindly regards
    Arnd

    Hi Arnd,

    Here are some suggestions :
    - you can move a node shared by two "selected" features belonging to two different "editable" layers. Vertices of both features will move together (note that vertices must have exactly the same coordinates in both features)

    - you can select many features belonging to different "editable" layers, and move them together with the mouse.

    - in the tool "new affine tranform", you can apply a affine transform to a layer. It is not yet possible to apply it to more than one layer at a time, but I think it would not be too much work to add an option "apply to selected layers". If it fits your need, you can make a feature request

    - if I missed your exact need, please, give more details

    The original problem as described in the question was solved by using copy/paste styles. The other idea about moving features from several layers together is quite well supported at least by two tools: Move Along Angle, Move features (edit toolbox tool).
