    See the revised code for the RestoreAttColors above.

    @Opie

    Would that be possible to tweak your code in order to preserve attributes width factor as well as (or instead of) its color?

    Yes. The calls to the sub-routines included in each save / restore routine would need to be modified to save and restore the ScaleFactor of each attribute.

    Glad to hear this works for that situation, too.

    I'm sooo glad this is still here. I suffered a disastrous HD crash.
    This time I've also saved it to an external drive.

    [and immediately after that post my ISP connection disappeared for the night. ]

    @Opie.

    Four years later and I still use these routines every week.

    Great stuff.
