Batch edit pins in symbol editor


I was wondering if this is possible. When creating a new symbol, I usually end up selecting
pins one by one and changing their functionality class (input, bidirectional input, etc…).
Would it be possible to do it on a bunch of selected pins?
For example when you have an data bus, selecting all the addresses and setting them all as
bidirectional at once could probably save a lot of time.

In Schematic Symbol Editor / Edit / Pin Table … there is an option to group pins by name, but it only works if pin names are exactly the same. Note the pin numbers “2, 3” for the GND pins and the --mixed values-- in the screenshot.

It would be nice if there was a way to select multiple lines (for example with [Ctrl + Click] and then change e properties only for the selected rows.

(Screenshot is from KiCad-nightly V5.99 where this also occurs.)

Indeed, editing multiple pins at one is a must. I am already missing this in v5.x

I voted… hope others will vote too…
