n You can enter audio properties for several tracks at once. Select more than one track in the project window and click the Info button. Any changes you make in the Edit CD Properties window will affect all of the selected tracks.
n If the Edit CD Properties window is opened when more than one track is selected, some settings may display the phrase Multiple Values. This means at least two of the selected tracks have different values for the same setting. For example, the pre-gap for one track might be set at 2 seconds, and the pre-gap for another track might be set at 0. Click a Multiple Values entry only if you wish to enter a new setting for all the selected tracks.
