Welcome to the forum!

  1. On the top right of the screen, one of the icons looks like a gas can. Click it. It will open the resource panel of your craft.
  2. In that panel, click the white square to the left of the resource you are interested in transferring (in the case of the Baguette, since it carries LF and Ox, click both of those). It will open ALL tanks on your craft that can hold that resource, as if you had right-clicked them all at once.
  3. Pin all the Baguette windows by clicking the black pin icon on each tank window.
  4. Pin one of the tanks you want to transfer fuel from.
  5. Now click the white squares again in the resource panel. All windows that were not pinned will go away.
  6. On the one non-Baguette tank window, click the 'Out' buttons for LF and Ox. ALL the Baguettes will start filling at the same time.
  7. If they are not full when that tank is empty, unpin it, right click another full tank, and pin it.
  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until all Baguettes are full.

I'm not sure about what kind of design you have, but normally, using 40 baguettes way too much. Perhaps you can use instead a bigger tank which can hold more fuel and greatly reduce the part count (thereby also making fuel transfer much easier).

This is amazing!
I knew about the fuel panel showing all parts on the craft with that fuel, but never thought of using it to select them...i have always been doing ALT+Click on every tank

Could you clarify how you are using baguettes for fuel? As for fuel transfers, sorry, no, one at a time is the only way to do it. 

And welcome to the forum. :)

I used the tiny fuel tanks to make a cool looking design but the refueling process for a second landing was a nightmare. On the Duna Station on my signature, the lander is visible near one of them big boy relay dishes.

No. As long back as I remember using the resource panel for anything, really.

Before posting that reply, I quickly tested it again in 1.3.1, so at least that long; but pretty sure it's been that way before that too.
