Issue with Setting Primary Category Using Extensions

I’m encountering a specific challenge on my WooCommerce site and would appreciate any guidance or solutions you might have. Problem Overview: I am trying to reassign bulk products to new categories on my WooCommerce site. For this task, I have attempted using two plugins: the Bulk Category Editor and the Yith plugin. While both plugins allow me to change the categories of products in bulk, neither offers the functionality to set one of these new categories as the primary category. Detailed Explanation: When I assign new categories to a product, it ends up with multiple associated categories. For example, a product might be listed under “For home and garden > Electrical products.” However, neither of these categories gets designated as the primary category. This discrepancy is evident as the products’ categories update in the backend, but not on the front-end. The backend even shows the “set as primary” option, but this requires manual intervention, which is not feasible for the large number of products I need to update. Key Issue: The core of the problem is the inability of the mentioned plugins to automatically designate a primary category during the bulk category reassignment process. This results in incomplete category updates on the front-end, affecting the organization and presentation of products on my website. Request for Assistance: Has anyone else experienced this issue? Are there any known workarounds or solutions to set a primary category automatically when using these plugins for bulk category changes? Alternatively, are there other plugins or methods I could use to efficiently update the primary categories for a large number of products? Any insights, suggestions, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for a solution that minimizes manual work and ensures that the primary category is set correctly during the bulk update process.
