Auto coloring children when setting a color for a folder?

Is there a way to automatically color the children when you set the color of a folder?

I really like it in Wwise, where all children inherit the color of their parent folder, unless you have manually set a color for them. Would be cool to have something similar or better in FMOD :grin:

Currently, it’s possible to multi-select a folder and its children, then right-click on the multi-selection and select “Set Color” from the context menu. This sets the color of all items in the multi-selection. Does this work for your purposes?

Hi Joeseph,

The issues with multi-selecting, is that I then need to open every child folder to be able to select them (is there actually a way to open/collapse all folders of a parent?)

To me it would be much nicer, if the children were automatically colored after the parent. So in this examples I would just have to select green for my ambience folder, and all children should be colored green. Unless I manually set them to another color, like I did with the Ambisonics folder.
I would really love to see this across FMOD (also for asset, parameter, FXChain browser etc.)

Thanks for the clarification.

I’ll add your suggestion that we add an option to automatically color all children of a folder when coloring that folder to our feature/improvement tracker.
