Editing more than one object

how can I edit the material for more than one object at the same time? Everytime when I select more than one object and edit the material settings I only edit the first selected object.

in order to edit two materials at the same time, you would have to combine them, which requires using material nodes, which is a whole different ball of wax.
never mind, i see you want to edit materials for multiple objects at the same time, i don’t think that’s possible, unless there’s a python script that does it.

Same material only, unless you used nodes and a part of the material you are editing is a part of several materials.
