In addition, there are a number of bulk edit options, such as Edit, Copy and Delete which can be applied on the selected work packages.
To do this click in the work package rows of the work packages you want to edit and right-click on a highlighted column in the work package list. (You can hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard and click to select multiple work package or select a work package, hold Shift and click on another work package row to select all work packages in between.)
This will open the list allowing general changes such as Copy, Delete and Move (provided you have permissions to perform these actions).

Apart from this, the list indirectly allows more detailed changes: Open detail view will open the detail pane at the right side of the list, and Edit links to the full range of options on the specific work package page.
