I have a feature request from a user who wanted to be able to set the build action of multiple different selected items in the properties pad. Trying to do it this way just grays out the properties pad however. I guess the more general thing would be being able to see multiple objects shared properties in the properties pad.

I'll add to this - the property pad is not disabled when multiple visual elements are selected in the design surface, however changes made to the properties are only applied to the final (or maybe the first, it's hard to tell) selected item.  This is confusing because it's not obvious what is happening.  We should have the same basic behavior as Interface Builder here and change all selected items.  Same applies for the Behavior tab - we should wire up the event to all selected elements, today it just wires up a single object even though multiples are selected.
