Batch Operations allow you to execute a task on your choice on a selection of archives.
It's a pretty common occurence: You imported archives without enabling automatic tagging, or you suddenly want to add tags to a lot of archives at once.
Editing tags manually for each file ain't gonna cut it...
Enter Batch Tagging, allowing for laser-focus, one-time operations over large sets of archives.
Batch Tagging interface as of 0.5.6
All your archives are shown in the checklist on the right, with archives with no tags pre-checked for ease of access.
Past that, it's just a matter of selecting what you want to do, optionally plugging in special arguments for the run, and going ham on batching!
The currently available operations are:
- Use Plugin: Use a plugin on the selected archives. The arguments available for overriding will depend on the plugin.
- Clear New: Remove new flag from selected archives.
- Delete: Delete the selected archives.
As shown in the screenshot, you can only override Global Arguments in Batch Tagging.
One-shot arguments, such as specifying a E-Hentai URL, are only available when editing a single archive through the classic Edit menu.
If you set a timeout value, the batch session will wait the specified time between archives.

While a batch session runs, you get a live summary of what the server is doing, and can cancel at any time.
