Batch edit in Toodledo?

It seems like there is probably not a way to do this, but I thought I would ask the community.

Is there any way to batch edit a number of tasks in Toodledo? Remember the Milk allows this, and it's a nice feature when you have a large number of items and need to change the due date or the context all at once.

Any ideas?

Claudio is correct, but it is far less useful than how RTM does Multi-edit (I am an RTM migrant). I am finding that in TD unless I know in advance that it will be easy for me to construct a search and that I truly want to make the same change; I find that most often I am editing one at a time.

Only circumstance where I have found it useful is if I want to add additional Tag(s) to a group; or as you implied in your ?,if all have same Due Date and I want to accelerate or postpone all.

FYI: I believe that it has been suggested and applauded by many that a method of selecting multiple tasks for a "normal" view and then being able to edit them would be helpful to many.

As I believe others have suggested elsewhere in the forum, I would like to also urge TD to consider adding functionality for editing multiple tasks with unrelated criteria. I too switched from RTM, which has this functionality. All in all, I find TD much more useful and user-friendly than RTM and other software I have tried. Having this additional functionality would be icing on the cake! :)
