Enable property editing on a selection/collection of documents

Show an empty propertypage (or with only property value the selected documents have in common) and make it possible to apply a filled in property to all selected documents. 
Because we don't have dynamic property pages i think this only should work when the documents are based on the same documenttype.
The "Set propertyvalue" function is not considered as a alternative for this functionality because it is only usable for documentmanagers (people who knows what the are doing).

    Hi Hans I agree with your observation but can you give more details on why exactly the set property values dialog is not an alternative? I could think of:

    1. The user wants to have the familiar layout of property pages. Then the direction would be to allow for AutoPages to be configured for the input UI.
    2. The user does not know what properties to select. Then an approach could be to configure pre-selected  sets of properties (possibly with custom labels) for the Set Property Value Dialog (which then could be used with multiple Document Types).
