I have many source files in a cpp project. I want to be able to select many of them at once, then right click ->Properties -> Build Tab -> and here choose whether they should be compiled and linked. I do that, but only one source file has changes applied. It's painful to do this repetitively for all source files. Are there any plans to fix this bug, or implement this feature? Thanks.

It is not possible at the moment, I think. It might be possible in the future...

Until someone creates a feature to do what you suggest, a decent work-around is to simply edit the .cbp project file in a text editor (it is an XML format). Just edit as you do for one file and exit C::B, then cut/paste the settings for the other source files.
