How to make user be able to view all fields

I remember years back, when I give "View All Data" or "Modify All data" system permission at the profile level, it will automatically give all FLS.  but when I check today, it seems only give object level permission, we still need to manually check all FLS for all objects. is there a easier way to grant all FLS to profile?

and to your actual question: I don't know of a way to grant a profile Visible access to field level security on a field without doing it on a field-by-field basis.
