X3: changing Reference Type for large numbers of records

In X3, is there a way to do a batch change of Reference Type for a large number of records in a single database?

Select the references you want to change, and have those showing.  Edit > change text > in Reference Type (last choice) then put in the current ref type setting and the new ref type you want to change it to. It will warn you how many it intends to change. You have to carefully type the whole of the reference type names (i.e. Journal Article, Book, Book Section) or it won’t let you do it, raising an error message that the ref type doesn’t exist.
