Select and add multiple stocks from a scan to a watchlist at once

I'm able to add a single stock from a scan to a watchlist or even add the whole scan to a watchlist but how do I select the first 32 stocks in a scan to add to a watchlist? and then select the following 32 stocks to add to another watchlist and so on?
 
Solution
I think I found an easy way to accomplish this. My workaround so far is to export my scan into excel, highlight the symbols in sets of 32 and import them back into tos as separate watchlists.
@jordan What is your first 32 scan selection based on? is it the netchage or % gain? if so, why not add that as a filter and set the results to 32 instead if default 50?

Once you have the desired number save that as a scanner setting and load the whole scanner in WL, with your preferred columns.

That should solve the issue.

I have 240 results from a scan with a custom indicator and 32 charts on one of my screens that are big enough for me to look at the labels I created for the custom study used in the scan. I would like to save all 240 stocks into watchlist sets of 32 so I can look at the labels of each set before loading the next one. I can do this by manually by adding the stocks to a watchlist one at a time but is there a faster way to select the stocks in sets of 32?
 
@jordan So, you are looking to bring them in to the Grid, of 32 cells not to a Watchlist, unfortunately there is no way load tickers to a grid cell other than color tag them. and there is no way to color tag individual tickers of a scanner automatically.
