bulk add stories to an Epic in nextGen software project

I have 131 stories I have bulk imported that I would like to add to my Epic, however it seems it's not possible to do this in NextGen projects. 
The bulk edit feature only shows old Epic's in other projects when selecting the update epic link field. 
The only instructions I have found are to do it one at a time from the backlog.

Does anyone know of an automated way to do this in Nextgen?

Hi @Chris Hudson 


It looks like you're running into an existing bug, which can be found here:
Please be sure to watch it, so that you are notified when this is fixed in a future release.



Ah, there it is. :) Thank you so much for replying, I have been going crazy trying to do this. 
I didn't realise you could multi-select issues in the backlog, that will be fine as a workaround. 
Thank you again. :)
