Hey there HL! Thanks for your suggestion! A rather similar thing to what you are describing is already planned for the not so distant future. In the meantime:
1. Moving multiple tasks inside a task list should be possible by selecting them (with "Shift-Arrows") and using "Ctrl-Shift-Arrows".
2. Moving multiple tasks to another note is possible when they are nested under a single task (using the "!move" task command) and also using the new Extract-to-note button: https://www.amplenote.com/help/double-bracket-note-link-syntax#Extracting_text_selection_to_a_note
This is similar to the notes multi-select. It should be simple to select multiple tasks for tagging, completing, and similar. For example, I wanted to delete multiple startup tasks that Amplenote suggested (download iOS app, add a footnote, etc.), but had to do that one by one. Down the road this would be especially helpful for switching tags as projects change, or dimissing/deleting multiple tasks.
Yes please: Bulk editing of notes, not only tasks! For editing tags, deleting, mark/unmark as shortcut, adding collaborateurs, downloading, and so on- everything I could do with a note.

It would be super helpful to be able to select multiple tasks and then copy, move, add tags and links, set start date, priority ect.

Just want to add my voice to this request. If I collect tasks in an Inbox note then when I review that note I will want to select several tasks and move them to todo/personal or todo/work etc. As things stand I have to process them one at a time and the move requires typing !move then typing the target note title.
