When is this plugin effective?

For example, it will be effective in case use HTML mode every time, and when copy from existing HTML files.
It also comes to be able to post consecutive changing line.

I do not understand whether which area to be stop batch formatting.

Try to stop the area where the visual editor is used.

Can the setting change and the batch formatting function be done at the same time?

When “change setting” button is pushed, the setting is changed.
When “Batch formatting” button is pushed, the batch plastic operation is done. The setting is not changed.

It displays as “It is necessary to permit the batch formatting” and cannot do the batch formatting.

To prevent the operational error, the batch processing is not done if there is no permission.
Please check “Permit batch formatting” check box.
