Mass editing

The List module also makes it possible to display more information about each record and to edit several records at a time. To enable this, first click on the table header (1):

The List view with an additional field displayed

This restricts the view to that single table and adds a selector (2) where you can select which additional fields to display. Select the "Type" field for now and click on the "Set fields" button. This makes the "Type" field appear in a new column to the right of the record list (4).

Editing all headers

To edit the headers of all records in one go, simply click the little pencil next to the "Header" label:

All field that are currently viewable can be edited at the same time, by choose a different icon:
