I haven’t found a way to do those types of global changes in FMOD (yet, there may be if someone does chime in an knows). I’ve experienced that same type of problem.
Since the property window is located in the same spot then you could use macros. With a little tinkering, you can have the macro change the parameters for you. It’s not a "one-massive-group-parameter-change", but it will get the job done and greatly reduce the time and the wear on your joints typing and clicking on all those property boxes.
For a band aid fix, try using a utility like this:
Unfortunately, quickeys doesn’t have a version for 10.7 because of dev related issues. Of course, these are for Mac and there are definitely great apps available for PC.
If you do plan to use macros, keep in mind that where the "Priority" property lies for simple events is different from where it lands in multi track events. Maybe the guys at Firelight added this suggestion for Studio????

Actually, there is a fairly simple way to bulk edit the ‘Priority’ property of events.
From the View menu, select the ‘Event Multi-Selection’ menu item, and then the ‘Property List’ menu item. This causes Studio to display the old ‘bulk edit property list’ interface when multiple events are selected, instead of the newer ‘fader view’ interface. As you will see, the old interface looks and acts a lot like the normal event property list, but allows you to set the properties of multiple events – including the ‘Use Template’ property that determines what template an event uses.
The fader view interface was designed to allow certian sophistocated actions that aren’t possible with a pure table-of-values approach, such as preserving relative fader values when dragging. We deliberately left out properties that wouldn’t benefit from the new format, since the old ‘property list’ is still a pretty good way to bulk edit those.
When you’re done editing property sheets and want to go back to the other bulk editing interface, open the View menu again, select the ‘Event Multi-Selection’ menu item, then select the ‘Fader View’ menu item.
I’ve tried that and all I get is a blank page with no properties to edit. Is there a preference that I’m missing?
*EDIT: I see, it only works on multi-track events. You can mix select with multi-track and simple events, but you can’t choose a group of just simple events.

Ah, that’s a known bug, but fortunately there’s a simple workaround: The property list view works fine if there is at least one Multi-Track Event in the multi-selection. If you’re using Simple Events exclusively you’ll need to create a Multi-Track Event every time you want to do some bulk editing, but you can safely delete it once you’re done.
EDIT: Oh, I see you worked it out. Carry on.
