I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to publish a major version of all the documents in a document library.  A lot of the documents are at different major and minor versions.  We would like to just publish them all up to the next major version without having to click through each one.

Thanks in advance!

I'm afraid there's no way to do it OOTB.

When I mass publish items (usually across several sites) I use a custom web part.

Are you able to write custom code to solve this at your organisation? I can let you know how it's achieved. (But there's no solution without custom code).

Further, I'm not aware of any commercial solutions to this problem.

This issue is not worth writing a dedicated web part for.  Thanks though!
