      Description

      Currently, there are two ways of changing the colourscheme for a group:

      - right click and follow the submenu(s) to the Group Colour submenu
      - Choose a colour from the 'Colours' menu after first ensuring that the "Apply colours to all groups" option is *not* ticked.

      The 'Apply colours to all groups' option is confusing because if it is set, then all group colours will be modified when an option is chosen from the colours menu, causing loss of view configuration (with no undo). The all-groups action is, however, essential to some operations - e.g. colour by conservation, etc - where it is more common to *not* want to modify the conservation shading for a particular group.
