Not sure what version you are using but you can do this starting in WF4. Not sure about WF5.

Make sure the surfaces are trimmed to the boundaries where the surfaces will attach. You should then be able to select two surfaces, select the merge feature, and add additional surfaces by holding the CTRL key and selecting additional surfaces. You could also select all the surfaces you want to merge then select the merge feature.

If a surface will be trimmed by the merge, you can only pick two surfaces at a time. So then you need to pick the merge quilt and then the next surface if you want to merge more than two surfaces.

Remember: many simple features are better than fewer complex ones...

That idea is good for some things, but sometimes it just makes clutter and makes the model hard to understand. Merge features are one of those time. If you have 7 merge features in a row as apposed to one, I would much prefer to see just one.

Same with rounds I am starting to really like the idea of having multiple sets of rounds in the same feature. If Pro/E had the capability of putting in the rounds in the order the sets are listed, I would probably only have one round feature at the end of the model tree.

In my oppinion the many simple features idea is one modeling technique, but it is not the only one, especially with the WF5 removal of resolve mode.

In Pro-E WF5 you can merge more than one surface at a time
