How to bind edit posts in WordPress bulk posts editing plugin?

Bind edit posts in WordPress bulk posts editing plugin is sometimes much easier than using “Bulk Edit” form. Because in bind editing, you can directly change any post features from the post table and see the result immediately.

This is also a good option when you need to change some features of all posts which are listed in one page at the same time.
