I use these to list composite parts (hinge assemblies, turntables and so forth) within a set inventory, but at the moment I have to create a separate .pbg for each different color of the assembly, and I can't indicate the quantity at all.

Of course, it's quite possible that there's a way to do this already and I just haven't discovered it! Wink

Interesting use case, there is no way of doing that at the moment though.

Groups don't have those attributes as you can't really select them, you can only go 'into' them.

the original intent of those numbers and colors was to let people build stuff with a limited inventory, the numbers would then go down when a copy is placed in the model.

But I favored other features instead so it got pushed back again and again.

But even in that setup it would only work on a single group not the whole tree.

I could however introduce a new part bin group kind whom let you display the contents of another one in a different color (for the col16 items in that group).

I'll add it to my 1.7 'maybe' list.
