no, I don't want to group the frames, I just modify two or three at a time
(for example : changing the row height in a table).

To reproduce the issue, follow these steps:
1) Create two text frames (for exemple X:20 Y:20 W:20 H:20 and X:50 Y:20
W:20 H:20)
2) type some text in the two frames
3) select the frames ([click and drag] or [click and <shift key> + click])
4) Change H from 20 to 50.
5) The text size has changed. (see picture attached)

Any idea?
