"All attributes by class" button

Question

I'd like to see a button, which could live on the OIP or the Attributes Palette (could even be a drop-down command) that would convert the graphic attributes of all selected objects to "by class" (including rendering texture). As it is now, we have to make those settings in two places, and we have to complete several operations to do it. I'd like this not to be a preference, but something to automate changing over all the settings. That way, we could change one or more back so that only some settings would be controlled by class designation.

This would make it easier for folks to operate in a setup whereby some or all graphic attributes are controlled by class, and make it easier to convert things to that way of using VW.

I've been using a script in version 12 to do something similar. Can't remember where it came from. I use it constantly if I open a drawing someone else has worked on. It doesn't do texture.

Chris, right, I expect that would be reasonably easy to script. Unfortunately for me (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), I haven't had the inclination to get into yet another programming language! All the same, I think that things people would find useful would best be built into the program.
