Summary0000903: V0.13 - Change Individual face color on solid is missing
DescriptionI am probably doing something wrong, but for the life of me I can't figure it out. Maybe FC thinks I am selecting a whole object but, I can't seem to get an option to select a face color.

When I select a face and right click on it, I am presented with the following 2 options to modify coloring:
Random Color

When I select Appearance, I can choose:
Material, Shape Color, Line Color, Color Plot? But no face color.

I could have swore I used to be able to change individual face colors (but Maybe I am just confused).

I looked through the forum and found a topic where a "Set Colors" item might have existed 6 weeks ago?

Right click on the object in the tree and use the "set colors" dialog.

Darn it! Red Faced! Sorry guys.
SlipTonic, you are 100% correct. Thank you so much
This can be closed out.

I kept staying on the main screen left clicking the face (to select it), then right clicking over the face to change it's properties. I think in my mind selecting the entire solid from the tree was not right because I wanted to only change a portion of the model, not the whole thing. Either way, its user misuse (which apparently happens more often as more gray hairs appear ;-) ).

Does anyone feel it would be beneficial to add the "Set colors" and maybe the "Transform" to the menu that pops up when you right click over the actual part on the main screen?

Yes, that should be available also in the normal menu because now it's a bit hard to find.

The code is prepared to add the two missing commands but we have to wait until 0000477 is properly implemented. Nevertheless, I'll close this ticket.
