is it possible to change the colors of a specific type of units (e.g. aircrafts) without having to edit the color for each of the 298 units using the editor?

Yup. But you're talking about the unit counter(s), no? Not the icons/silhouettes?!

In Deployment mode you can get a Unit Report, key 'U', Formation Report, key 'F', OOB report, key 'O'. You can edit equipment in the Force Editor but I think you probably know that.

yes, but his screen shows "unit report" but also he shows an arrow pointing to the color unit, which is ONLY show to me when I use Force Editor. But when I use Force Editor, my screen does not show like his screenshot.

so i dont know how to change all my aircraft counter color from grey to green with a single click, instead of editing 289 counters color one by one.

You can't change colors by icons. You can change all of one color to another.

His screen shot is in the Scenario Editor. On the Menu Bar at top. Edit/Deployment. Then when you are in the DEPLOYMENT mode you can bring up the Unit Report. 'U' for unit, 'F' for formation, 'O' for OOB. He added the arrow himself. sPzAbt653 has the link for what you want for colors.

Sorry about it... I forgot to start the vanilla version. In the force editor it works, not in the (u)nit info.

Glad that you managed to proceed though.

Like the other guys said, don't use the editor that you see when you use the 'U' key. It's not fully functional. I do use it for some things like to change the 'untried' and 'veteran' status of units.

Below is from the editor thread which you need to read if you have not: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4387350

"A new force editor is partially completed, but will need more work before the legacy one can be abandoned. I’ll cover the new stuff later. For now, the force is best generated via the legacy editor."
