How can I save and load customized (background-)colors of blocks for later simulink sessions?

3 views (last 30 days)
When a simulink session is closed, all user-defined colors for blocks are erased from palette. Is there a possibility to copy these colors from blocks or save/load these palettes?

This answer is a good solution to get/set the parameters of former defined costumer colors. The main problem of loosing self-defined costumer colors (sometimes mumerous)in the simulink-palette seems to be solved in latest simulink versions. So it may be recommended to upgrade our 2009b-Matlab or finding out the global option in 2009b to set for saving this data for next start. Thank you very much, Muthu

So if it was solved it obviously became broken again. I have used 2012a and 2014b (both 32-bit), and there the custom colors were stored and always available. Now I have changed to 2015b 64-bit, and the palette is lost after restarting. Can this be fixed somehow? It´s very much annoying.
