Mass Edit

FoundryVTT module for searching and editing multiple placeables at the same time.

Support me on Patreon to get access to the the version that supports field Randomization and preset Drag&Drop

Note that all keybinding referenced bellow can be changed via 'Configure Controls'

Recommended modules:

Showcases by Foundry community members


Select the placeables you wish to edit and press 'Shift+E'.

You will be presented with the following modified 'Configuration' window:


Common data shared between all placeables will be highlighted as green, differing data as orange, and flags as purple. The newly added checkboxes to the right indicate which fields will be saved on Apply.

In addition to this key-binding Token and Tile HUDs will contain a new button if multiple tokens or tiles are selected which will also open up this modified configuration window.



An alternative to selecting placeables manually is to press 'Shift+F' to open a configuration window which will allow you to perform scene and world wide searches using the selected fields.

Text fields allow the use of wildcards: *



Field can be copied from opened Mass Edit forms using 'Ctrl+C'. Data copied this way can be pasted onto any selected or hovered over placeables using 'Ctrl+V'. Each placeable type has it's own "clipboard" from which data will be pasted. You can also paste this data as plaintext in and out of foundry.



Any configuration window opened using the module will have a 'Presets' header button. It will open up a window where you can store currently selected fields and re-use them later.


Preset's window can also be opened using Shift+X allowing to quickly apply them on any selected placeable.


Numerical fields can be added and subtracted instead of overriding the current value. This can be done by right-clicking the numerical controls in the Mass-Edit form. Green background indicating addition, and red subtraction.


Brush Tool

This tool can be activated by clicking the brush icon in the header of Mass Edit forms

Once selected your cursor will be transformed into a brush allowing you click and drag over placeables on the canvas to apply fields selected in the form onto them.

The brush can also be accessed via the Preset window

Permission Editing

Note, Token and Actor forms will contain a 'Permissions' header button allowing you to quickly change access permissions.



When enabled in the module settings, updates made to placeables will be tracked and available via Mass Edit forms. These updates can be selected to be applied to the currently open form or copied to the module's clipboard to be pasted on other placeables.


Macro Generator

Using the selected fields the module will generate simple macros that will update, toggle, delete, or open Mass Edit forms.


Define the target for the generated macro


Limit the scope of documents affected by the macro.


The action you want the macro to perform on all documents that matched based on Target and Scope

In addition to the above, if Update or Toggle are selected you'll also get an option to select the matched documents and/or run another macro. Useful if you have macros that require placeables to be under control for them to execute. For example filters in the Token Magic FX compendium.

Randomization and Add/Subtract operators are supported but will add a dependency on Mass Edit to be active when the macro is run.
