Convert custom property from string to longstring


I've made the misstake of making one of my properties that should be longstring, string instead. I've tried simply changing the propertytype to longstring but then all existing properties become empty. Is there anyway I can convert it?

Probably the quickest way to accomplish this would be to create a new property for the longstring property type and add it to the affected PageTypes, then you make a script that loops your pages and copies the string value of the "old" property to the new one.
Then you can delete the old property and rename the new one to whatever the name of the old was.
