Having problems with copy to selected across the board. I'm trying to add a modifier to all selected objects. It's Greyed out. They are meshes in their own collection, no other objects.

(skip to the end for main question) Yesterday, I was selecting all objects and trying to add a material. Copy to selected was available but wouldn't do anything. I had to join every object and then separate (which isn't the worst), but the objects were tied to shrink-wrap and probably had to use copy to selected to get them working again...

How do I add a modifier to All selected objects?

    $\begingroup$ select all your object, then at last shift select the one with the modifier, then ctrl L > Modifiers? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I think I did that, but with Link Data from the search menu. You get a list of what you want to share, and then it works somehow. I will try with ctrl L! Thanks!!! $\endgroup$ Commented May 19, 2020 at 16:08
