How to convert gff3 files to Genbank files for input into Pathway Tools?

I am working with outputs from Apollo (a GMOD tool, JBrowse plugin for manual annotations).

Does anybody work with both Apollo and Pathway tools ? How do you handle the conversion from GFF3 (Apollo output) to GenBank (input format for Pathway Tools) ?

Thanks for your help.

Pathway Tools currently doesn't support the GFF3 format. We do intend to add that at some point in the future, but we don't have a schedule of when that feature will be available.

Doing a quick search on those two formats, there appears to be quite a number of conversion tools from genbank to gff3. However, I'm not sure if those tools will convert in the other direction.
