Edit Object Colour conjunction with Face Rule

Is it possible to use “Edit Object Colour” command in conjunction with Face Rule?

(Without additional steps like Group Faces please)

Unfortunately, not really. However, a user on eng-tips (CNSZU) posted a journal that allows you to select tangent faces when editing object color.

Lame!  Another ER!

 

Thanks cowski1 for sharing a workaround. I will try that route.

Cowski1, When running that Jounal, I get this error:

Journal: Colour Face Rule.Journal: Colour Face Rule.

Any idea?

Re: Edit Object Colour conjunction with Face Rule

That's odd. I got it to work in NX10.0.3. All I had to do was replace the path to the dlx file on line 25 in the vb script:
Public Shared JournalDirectory As String = "C:"

I tested using the instructions on eng-tips and using "Menu > Tools > Journal > Play".
Did you edit any of the content of the vb script other than the path to the dlx file?

Thanks Ben for verifing. I've missed a step: to show the Journal path.

 

It's working now. I should go back to Eng-tips and give a star to CNSZU .
