Hi Ryan,

We have this bug
still open

It’s a long time feature request and has not been impletemented yet.

There is no current easy workaround to this issue. At least, not that I can
think of. What Owen is suggesting will of course work but it’s not an
automated mean. You’ll have to work this out most manually.

I guess this is not helping you much but at least knowing that we consider
this a must have feature, we should be able to get that down the road in the

Meanwhile, if you find a hack, please let us know! :)
