    Default Layer Color Replacement / Translate Tool?

    We have a new CTB file that we are trying to use in our office. There are a lot of drawings associated with it, and I was wondering if there was a command or tool or script that will replace layer colors. Similar to "laytrans" but only for color replacement. For example, say I want every instance of red to now be green, is there something that can easily do this?

    I found a color translator third party thing, but the trial doesn't want to work on my version of autocad (200. Any help? Thanks!

    Try this... after loading, the command name is Color_Fix. You can set up an external text file for translating the colors if you need to do a bunch of dwgs. Thanks to Bill Kramer.
    Be aware that this will translate the color of entities (if not Bylayer) along with the Layers

    hmm, I don't think I understand the setting up an external text file. How does one go about that?
