French term or phrase: MAJ
In a user manual for a transport scheduling system. There are three dates available for selection, displayed one above the other. I take MAJ (Mettre a Jour?) to mean "Select all" but can anyone please confirm? Thanks in advance for your help. Here is the text:

6. Sélectionner les dates de sortie en cliquant sur les lignes : les lignes sélectionnées sont en BLEU. Sélection multiple = MAJ+ clic
