I've been using LW for like a decade and I'm ashamed to even ask this question :) but ... is there a shortcut for inputing data into all of the numeric fields at the same time? For instance in Maya I can select 'XYZ position' and simply input a number which will populate all of the fields.

Make sense?

Thx

I'm not sure about inputing numeric data all at the same time...
... But you can input the numbers via the numeric pad on your keyboard, and pressing the numeric pad return key to input/scroll down through each field quickly.

I know what you mean, it can be quite annoying. Just like the numeric input doesn't see if you're using World or Local coordinates.

What I usualy do when I need to edit the envelopes of muliple objects or want to change the XYZ or HPB values at the same time is using the graph editor and select the keys I want to change.

How disappointing that such a basic workflow feature is MIA. Good thing it's 5 o'clock I need a drink!

you can't select all the numeric input fields with, it but at least you can edit multiple objects at the same time.

Yet another thing that should be in LW.
