Batch Edit disabled in ribbon when editing documents' metadata from DL webpart

Nov 26, 2013 at 3:01 AM
We are using this feature in our SharePoint 2010 Std installation. The feature works great when editing documents' metadata properties from the document library. The same library is displayed as webpart on site's homepage. When users try to edit documents' metadata properties from webpart, the button for Batch Edit shows up as disabled!
Any workaround/fix would be much appreciated.

One possible workaround is to have a link under the web part library that says "Click here for advanced editing" and that link takes them to the original library.
