I wanted to remove all underlines from the text in a draw document. I tried "select all" and various text options, with inconsistent results. I managed to delete the underlines and change the font on one page. I haven't been able to reproduce this on the other pages, or reverse this on the one page, so I now have a total mess.
I also have a mess with colors, other formatting, etc...
Same bug exists in OO as in LO.

Note the different fonts on different pages [mostly Liberation Serif on one, mostly probably Ariel on the other], and the difficulty of editing fonts.
In the future to avoid such a situation, it would be wise to use styles from the beginning. Then you could simply edit the style, Font effects - toggle underlining on and off.
I don't know, why you think "Select all" would enable text editing through separate shapes.
I don't see a bug here, so closing.

I disable styles, autoformat, etc. because in my experience, if I don't disable styles, autoformat, etc., the software keeps changing what I typed, adds unwanted formatting in the wrong places, and makes it impossible to consistently recreate the right formatting. How is enabling that "wise"?

Because having to individually select and edit 1,400 text frames is an arm-destroying pain.
Reopened, because making it harder for users to use LibreOffice Draw is a bug.
I have arm injuries, and this worsens them.
Ok, the issue could be solved in a different way: enabling find & replace by format, like in Writer (Other options in the F&R dialog).
Then you could find by underline and replace by regular.
Changing summary and setting to NEW. I could not find duplicates.
I would not accept your original proposal to enable editing text in all selected shapes at once.
Find/Replace would be very useful, especially if it can be extended to colors, etc.
I still think it's confusing that "select all" doesn't allow these edits though.
As of 3.3.1 it was possible to mass-edit text, change fonts, etc. in all text frames, to ensure consistent formatting across text frames, in a document using the workaround discussed in bug #34749.
A find and replace option would be a better long-term solution, of course.
As of 184.108.40.206 it is no longer possible and not yet again possible to mass-edit text in LibreOffice Draw. Users must manually select and edit text in each frame, which may involve selecting and editing dozens of frames.
The fix to bug #34749 has solved one bug, but created another.
My bad. "Select All" and Format > Character go a long way to solve this.
Same comment as in bug 92584, comment 5.
Don't see a big reason to distinguish between Format and Attribute. => dup
