Bulk add categories to media?

Posted: 17 Nov 2012 7:47AM GMT
Classification: Query
I have over 1500 media items, most of them photos (seriously, only 30 aren't photos). I am trying to organize them by adding categories to them to make certain types of photos easier to find. For example, all newspaper clippings can go under a "Newspaper" category.

However, I find when I select more than one photo at a time and add the category, it only adds the category to the last photo I selected.

Do I REALLY have to go through 1500+ images and individually add a category for each one?! That would take hours to do something I could do in minutes with a bulk add feature. Why does it seem like FTM is always lacking some kind of basic function? It took them years to add a sync feature and now I'm discovering crap like this. Disgraceful.

Please, someone tell me I'm wrong.
