How to recolor the UI elements in a bunch of patches at once?

    I'm interested in modifying the VIZZIE patches to a darker color scheme. Is there any simple way of doing this quickly?
    As far as I can tell the Object Defaults dialog only modifies objects that still have their default colors.

      I only see that : Open the inspector window then do the bgcolor you want, select it by ctrl-c, and then select the various objects in max, then select the color in the inspetor window, and then ctrl-v.

      maybe try one of the included color schemes instead? one of them might suit. these change the default colors (though not in Object Defaults)... they change objects whose colors are currently still at default settings. It's the little button at lower left.

      I'd probably use Text Wrangler. Open all of the patches you want to change, and do a find/replace across files.
