HELP!- Checkbox set issue-for an inventory

Description of the issue

Hello all,
I am seeking help with a inventory/checkbox question. Is there a way to check multiple boxes in a checkbox set at once? I would think pressing "Shift+click" would work, but it doesn't. I have created an inventory for items in a box. I'd like to be able to visually display how full a box is with a particular set of items by using a checkbox set to "represent" the box and having the checked items be filled spaces. Please see attached image.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. I created a checkbox set, items 1-100 in a 10x10 grid.

Expected result

I'd like to be able to select all boxes in the checkbox set so they can be checked at once without having to individually check/uncheck the boxes. Example. If I have 26 of Item A in spaces 1-26, why can't I select and check 1-26 at once.

Actual result

I have to individually check each checkbox, which is time-consuming and tedious.
