    Can't mass change Note color (2003 SP-1)

    Admittedly, this is a minor issue but hey.... I thought I'd ask anyway. When I go to "Tools/Options/Note Options" and try to change the color of my Notes, the change doesn't take effect. In fact, after choosing another color and clicking the "OK" button in that dialog box, the "Apply" button in the main Options window is greyed out and I have to click, "OK". Is this a "bug"?

    I can change the color of each note individually. But with over 60 Notes, I would rather change them all globally and then change the odd individual one.

    I think you will need to search for VBA to perform this. Note colors is a function which is changed per note, enabling a user to sort notes by color for different subject matters.

    Perhaps I'm contused and don't understand what the "Note Options" choice of Note color actually does? It would appear from the dialog box that you can change ALL the colors of your Notes by choosing which color you want from the dropdown menu. But again, perhaps I don't understand what this option is supposed to do. See the screenshot below:

    The option you are referring to changes the note color for all 'New' notes from that point forward... it retains the color defined for old notes... here is an article from MS KB on the subject... http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;197578
