Help Configuring Faces

Hello,

When a color is configured with a face, all of the configuration inputs are placed into columns. Is there a way to delete the unwanted configured columns? Or perhaps a way to configure a color in the standard configuration panel?

The way it is configured now, I can't configure colors unless the stars align with all of the different configured variables... Perhaps I am doing it wrong?

    No, you are doing it right. Properties are config-specific so you do have to align all the stars. A wilcard option would be good.

    @Evan_Reese 's FS could be easily extended to allow face colors.
    I actually made that update a few days ago. It works with faces now.

    Not only can I color a part face with this, but this lets me color a face and then over ride that color by coloring the face again if the conditions require it! Wow. @Evan_Reese

    pretty cool! credit for that goes to the Onshape devs. All I did was add a line to allow faces and they made it work.
