I generally use icicles to execute a large number of parallel actions.

One thing I find myself doing often is narrowing the number of candidates, and spamming C-<next> to execute an action on all of the matching candidates.

I've been through the docs, and I can't find a more efficient way to do it. Is there a more finger-friendly way to execute an action on all current candidates?


Use C-! to act on all candidates.

(M-! is similar, but slightly different. And C-| and M-| are parallel, but they perform an alternative action on all candidates.)

See Icicles - Choose All Completion Candidates.

This is also explained at other locations in the doc (e.g. with examples). See, for example, the intro section Icicles - A Nutshell View -- this example, for instance.
