Is there a way to select multiple POIs in a Google Earth view, and save them to my places, other than clicking on them one by one?

I need to put entire categories of them into a KML file for further analysis, for a small city. There appears no way to do this within the GE GUI but presumably there is some sort of hack to achieve this. I can probably work with OSM POIs instead but was wanting to use the Google ones for this particular project.

Any help gratefully received,
