Issue importing DDB symbols from Altium Designs

Hi, I have a large number of projects done in Altium . These projects are using a custom database file where the logic is similar to EASYEDA -PRO operation. A record describes symbol,footprint,3d model . I proceed to import but since many parts (eg. resistors ) have the same schematic symbol (i use RES) i end up with parts in EASYEDA schematic that have different name but same device  type. After import in EASYEEDA devices are associated to schematic symbol .So this means that all different resistors in my database are all RES devices having different name .Footprints are not imported  and also 3d models also .These are shown as extra fields but i can't use them My first thought was to change devices  in group change mode .Eg.All existing 1K 0603 resistors changed with one action from RES to 1K_0603. Doing that in edit device changed all resistors no matter value in my schematic to1K_0603 device . So working with DDB parts is not possible. At least can i select common devices and group change ? Is there easy way to do that ?

@mixkef In the future, we will provide the device replace feature

@usersupport Thank you for your support . Your new program is very nice . I worry though about a couple of things that i would like further explanation My first concern is that if we install and run is there guarantee that in future EasyEDA remains a low cost or free solution .I see the free up to now and i worry ..  The big issue with program operation is that there is no mass change of devices in schematic, You have to erase one by one in case you make a change of device.Will this be fixed in the future. So far you have the best library i have seen in terms of magnitude and usability . Very good job indeed . <br> <br>

When you import to EasyEDA Pro, you need to compress the schematic and PCB as a ZIP file, otherwise the device will not be binding, the device = symbol + footprint + 3D model + properties, you can change or edit the device information at Library - Device - Project at bottom Library [https://prodocs.easyeda.com/en/schematic/side-bottom-panel-project-library/index.html](https://prodocs.easyeda.com/en/schematic/side-bottom-panel-project-library/index.html)<br> <br>
