There aren't many cell edits that make sense to apply to a whole dataset at once, but filling down is one of them (and I assume its sibling "Blank Down" too).

This would be a common operation needed after splitting multi-valued cells: depending on what the user wants to do with the exported data, they might need filling the resulting empty cells in all other columns with the data from each record's first row.

The "All" dropdown could contain extra options "Edit rows > Fill down" and "Edit rows > Blank down", just like all other columns have.

Describe alternatives you've considered
I don't know of a different way to do that apart from applying it to each column one by one?

Additional context
Currently using OpenRefine 3.1 RC1.
