Or you could type: set surface_color, -1 or if you had set the surface_color for a particular object, then you would type: set surface_color, -1, objectname where "-1" is the way of resetting to the default. This also works for other settings that show up as "default" in the "Settings -> Edit All..." GUI. Cheers, Rob -- Robert L.
