For agents, you can configure document selection and/or specify the target for the agent (all documents, selected documents, etc). However, for action buttons in the view action bar, most of the simple actions and formula code act only on the highlighted (caret) document in the view, regardless of whether you have any documents selected in the selection margin. The "Delete document" simple action is the only one that I'm aware of that acts on all selected documents, rather than just the caret document. This can be very confusing to users. When they select multiple documents, they just assume that anything they click on will act on those selected document and not the highlighted document (which may or may not be selected in the selection margin).

I know there are other ways to produce this behavior in an action button on the view action bar (i.e. using LotusScript to process selected documents in a collection, or using the ToolsRunMacro @Command to execute an agent configured to run on selected documents). However, it would sure be handy to be able to specify the target or define document selection in the Action Properties dialog box (similar to the way we can do this in the Agent Properties dialog box).
