Open a chapter that has good colors and no error message.

Select all the files in your book.

Use File > Import > Formats to import the good colors from the file you
opened into all the other files in the book.

OK Techwr-lians:

Minor but annoying issue with TOC regeneration in a new Frame book
(prepared by a Frame newbie I'm training). Every time I regenerate, I
get a handful of "Color definition inconsistent" errors in the Book
Error Report. I've seen them occasionally over the years, but with the
careful use of templates and the import function, pretty much avoided
them. So now I have little idea how to get rid of the messages.

I tried opening each doc, going to View > Color Definitions > Add,
Change or Delete ( ! ), but the messages still remain. Clearly there's
still a problem--and it's sitting between the chair and the keyboard.
What am I missing please? The Help is no help.
