Assign color to different areas in a single step?

How could one assign the same color to different text phrases / areas without each time having to click (and find) the same color again here:

And how could one assign the same color to different text phrases / areas in a document / folder in a single process without each time to have to click (and find) the same color for each text (phrase) one by one again? E.g. mark a text / words at the end of a doc and at the beginning and the middle and then assign the color.

Well, I don’t think very many Windows programs allow you to have several areas of the text marked at the same time. That’s where the difficulty lies, since Scrivener follows this standard Windows behavior of allowing only continuous/contiguous text marking. But Scrivener does remember the last color you used for highlighting, so each time you mark a different area, you should just have to click the toolbar icon, not go through the whole color selection process again. However, this remembered color does not persist when Scrivener is closed and reopened; you would have to re-locate and re-select it each time you restart the program.

Thank you very much, David!
