So there is always the kludge of snapping a quick blueprint of your assembler you've designated to build X thing and plopping it down rapid fire with 20 or so mouse clicks. What if instead of this we could select multiple anything and then from the build assignment dialogue tell all selected anythings to build a specific something.

It's one of those things that I can't believe doesn't exist because it'd be so handy for some of the more repetitive tasks in the game.

Are you aware you can use shift + left click and shift + right click to copy settings from entity to entity? (works on just about any entity, includes circuit & logistic settings)
Or do you mean something in addition to this?
