I noticed that when we press "Apply to selected" button (e.g. apply thermostats for selected zones), in resulting IDF file (out.idf) there are still unique elements for control schedules and thermostats for each zone while temperature setpoints are the same... It leads to inability to use this IDF for further processing and blows up the IDF itself. Wouldn't it be correct to use unique thermostat objects with the same control and setpoints? Or even better to use Zone Lists?

Maybe this would be better being a feature request

@Dinosaver, can you explain in more detail how It leads to inability to use this IDF for further processing. The issues you hit can help us define the ideal behavior. The general approach now is that each zone has a unique thermostat, but that a thermostat's heating and cooling setpoint schedules can be a shared resources. There was a time when thermostats were also shared resources but that was problematic.
