Is there a quick way to select all rubbers to set them to soft? I was going to start working on converting things to 2.5. While I'm on the topic, do all tables not made for 2.5 need to be adjusted (slope, rubbers, etc.) or just some? Thanks for any info!

No quick way as far as I know, other than using the layers buttons (numbers on left) to hide irrelevant layers and then selecting each rubber and changing to soft. you can select multiple items with shift+click to save a little time.

Not all tables need adjusting for 2.5 but I find most benefit from lowering slope/flipper strength a little. Sometimes the plunger will appear too weak, with the ball falling back down the lane but this is actually a result of too much power. Either reduce its power or move it back little by little until it behaves sensibly.

A table slope of 7.7 and flipper strength of halfway or just over often seems to be a good starting point for adjusting tables.

As I understand it, with Phys 2.5 the ball is actually lighter, but 'gravity' is stronger making the ball feel heavier. This is why a high flipper strength can sometimes smash the lighter ball out/off/through the table.
With ramps, again what sometimes appears to be too little power may well be the opposite.

Balls getting stuck while rolling on ramps may be due to slope angle not being quite right or a kicker that launches the ball into it being a little strong, causing the ball to actually stick IN the wire.

These are the conclusions I've come to anyway.
ROM has done some fantastic 2.5 optimisations for his tables, maybe he or someone else has wiser words of advise.
