Is there a way to import search results from advanced search to a list other than adding them one by one to the watchlist?

This was possible some time ago. So am I either too dumb to find the feature, is is temporarily unavailable or permanently deprecated?

Advanced search results have an 'Add to Watchlist' button next to each entry if you display the list in 'detailed' mode. There's no bulk import feature to add them to a list from there, unfortunately.

So you can add them all to your watchlist with a single clcik, and ou can't add them to a different list from there, but it's pretty easy and quick to use the 'add to watchlist' buttons to add any titles you want to your watchlist, and then use the 'Copy to/Move to' feature in your watchlist to transfer them in bulk to a different list.

But that only works for titles, not persons. Please make it so for people too, or explain why it's too expensive to do so.
