Is there a way to?

Is there a way to edit the pressure of multiple lines at once?  Pics I draw tend to have a lot of lines that I will all edit to have the same pressure settings after I finish putting it all together.  I save a preset for it, which is a feature I like, but then I have to go through and edit the lines one by one, which is massively time consuming.  Especially if it's a complicated pic that has several dozen lines to edit this way.  I know Illustrator I could could do something similar (it wasn't pressure, it was stroke style).  I could do it all at once there, but I was limited to what stroke styles were available in the pack, or I had to make my own.  My lines end up looking a lot better in Affinity, but I do wish I could speed the process up.

Pressure? - See the pressure sensitivity here, though in your case I think you mean more the stroke style and width settings you can apply there to lines (strokes) on that top options panel. Just select several lines (layers) and apply the desired strokes width etc. to them.

Not pressure sensitivity.  In the stroke drop-down menu.  It's got stroke style, width, cap, etc.  One of the settings is "pressure."  It drops down another box that lets you change the width of different parts of the lines.  I use it to make lines taper at one end (among other things).  But if I select more than one curve, that menu box goes away to be replaced with the align menu, so I can't change those elements of more than one curve at a time.

Good evening RJ21,

 

If you select several lines with the "Node Tool", you can change the pressure on them at once.

I suppose I forgot to hit the submit reply button on a post I made not to long ago. 

 

To expand on reglico's tip, create styles from the pressure setting and apply them  to however many objects needed.

Node tool.  Hmm.  I'll have to give that a try and see if it works faster.

Selecting multiple curves with the Move Tool also works, & if you use the Affinity Designer Stroke panel to change the pressure curve, you can also interactively change the stroke width without the pressure curve window closing.
