Manipulating options of multiple projects in a workspace or targets by hand is a tedious process. There exists a contributed plugin called Project Options Manipulator that helps to change multiple options and properties of build targets or projects.

This section shows how to change a custom variable named WX_VERSION for the whole codeblocks workspace from 30 to 31:
