Batch Edit in the new version

In the Batch Edit function in the new version, it's not obvious that the various fields have dropdowns. I'm sure that the arrows were eliminated to make the interface simpler and less cluttered. Still, a bit confusing.

Also, I think that the ON/OFF switch should automatically become "ON" when a field value is changed.

And, there's no longer any warning when deleting tasks. I realize that the tasks can be undeleted in Account Settings but it's one task at a time. In Batch Edit, I often delete several tasks at a time. It seems to me that a warning is still a good idea.

Edited: Did I somehow turn off the warning by disabling popups?

I particularly agree with #2, ON/OFF should automatically go off.

Thanks for the suggestions and feedback. Having to manually switch the ON/OFF button adds more confirmation to the change and prevents mistakes from happening on large quantities of tasks. Perhaps if we add a "Revert Changes" option in the future, then we can do what you suggested.

Batch edit is working inconsistently for me. I changed all the durations = worked. I changed all the contexts = DID NOT WORK. I changed all the folders = DID NOT WORK

When it did not work, what exactly happened? Did none of the changes take effect, or only some of them? Did you flip the switch to the "on" position for the context/folder you were trying to edit?
