Change the same setting in multiple presets at once

There was already a similar post, but I couldn’t comment there because it was closed.

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
I want to use different FSRS parameters for different types of cards. Because of the way FSRS is implemented in Anki, to achieve this, I have to create separate presets for different decks. However, this creates a problem. If I want to change a setting (say, learning steps, leech settings, maximum answer seconds, etc.), I have to do that in every preset one-by-one. Previously (before FSRS), I would use the same preset in all my decks to avoid this problem.

Describe the solution you’d like
An ability to change the same setting in all the presets together. The only problem that currently comes to my mind is that it can make the UI complex.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

  • An add-on to change the same setting in all the presets together
  • An ability to use different FSRS parameters in decks even if they have the same preset

I have already written about this once.

At least there is not enough section with all presets for quick switching and editing of settings.

I don’t think ANKI is the only program that uses a group of settings combined into an entity for quick switching. It is worth looking for examples of how this is implemented in other programs.
