When I ⌥ AltLMB LMB on a transformations property, I can change multiple the property for multiple object with once input action. The property turns blue for the duration of the operation.

Is there a way to make this work for custom properties?

  • $\begingroup$ While it is possible to use "Alt"+LMB on values like rotation, you can also use the right-click menu and "Copy to selected" or it's variations like "Copy to all selected" and "Copy single to selected" while the first is easy to understand the latter i didn't yet figure out the difference of. That said, the custom property value does not have that option of "Copy to selected", thus i believe there is a differentiation inside Blender that may as well be reason why the "Alt"+LMB combination is not working there. $\endgroup$ – Xylvier Nov 20 '19 at 16:36

I don't believe it's possible by selecting both of the object. For a simple reason, one of the object may not have the property.

If you want to change multiple property at once you can add a driver between the property of the two (or many) objects.

    $\begingroup$ You can change mesh or lamp specific properties for example even if other object types are selected though $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Aug 15 '17 at 3:08
