First, make sure you don't have "Primary Only" set to "On".
A good practice is to adjust one photo the way you want, then +Lift Adjustments+ (delete from the list any you don't want), select all the photos to which you want to apply the remaining adjustment(s), and +Stamp Adjustments+. I have assigned a keyboard shortcut to Lift Adjustments (iirc).
This will meet your need. There may be a quicker way to batch apply a preset -- I'm on the forum while I upgrade my vaults and can't check just now.
The controls at left will only operate on one photo at a time. There's no way to change that.
You can apply presets to multiple photos at a time. But you must do it from the menu. Select Photos (in the menu bar) and "Apply Adjustment Preset" (or "Apply Adjustment") with multiple photos selected and it will apply the same adjustment to > 1 photo at a time (as long as "primary only" is not selected).
Note: This requires Aperture 3 or higher.
