Hi Kevin,

   Yes, the settings that produced the surface coloring using Render by 
Attribute are not saved in the session, only the coloring is.  I agree 
that the settings should be saved.  Eric Pettersen wrote the Render by 
Attribute code and can comment on whether this will happen in the future.
