Lightroom Ecosystem: Ability to copy/sync settings/adjustments across a group of photos

It seems that I am unable to copy or sync adjustments to multiple images in the new LRCC? I just imported/uploaded my first job with over 1200 RAW files, and need to set my base contrast/saturation/sharpening to all the RAW files before I begin my select edits. For some reason my "paste edit settings" is greyed out when I have multiple images selected. I'm assuming this may be some sort of user error on my part, there is no way a professional photo editing tool would not allow the use of base settings applied to a group of photos. However even when I go back to "add photos", there is no option to apply a preset on import like in the old Lightroom? Adobe please help! LRCC is obviously useless to me if I have to Ctrl/Copy Ctrl/Paste 1200 times a day... Thank you,

Unfortunately, you can only paste edit settings to one photo at a time right now. you can select multiple photos in the Edit view with the filmstrip below it, but even then 'Paste' will only result in the most selected photo getting changed.

Syncing changes across images - This is one of the most important features of Lightroom.  Until this is implemented, it would be difficult to use this for a lot of professionals. Also, autosync has been a great tool for us to post crop photos.  In an ideal world, we could continue using the Lightroom classic version of this or adapt Lightroom Classic to allow for making these kinds of changes.

Please bring the sync/apply preset to all selected images.

I just want to add my voice to having this feature added, I think a cloud based sync and so on is a natural progression and I really like that with the new Lightroom. But not being able to paste adjustments across multiple shots at once is ridiculous, so I can't quite use it efficiently until that feature is there. So yeah, +1 for that feature. :)

This is unacceptable as a working professional to not be able to sync settings to multiple images. Please fix this in an update Adobe if you want this program to be the future over LR Classic.
