Creo View MCAD - Change Color of Component Only Works for Solids

In Creo View MCAD, you can change the color of the selected components pretty easily. However, this only seems to work for solids. If some or all of your component is surfaces, those surfaces stay the original color. Is there an easy way to also change the color for surfaces? You can manually select each individual surface to change the color using the right click menu, but that is incredibly tedious to do for hundreds of surfaces.

If you are opening Creo view files published from Windchill, there is a preference for the recipe file to treat these surface(like shrinkwrap) as quilts(?) to enable color application in Creo View.   We added this preference 3 years ago and republish any items that have your condition so we can apply colors.  Sorry, I don't recall the exact preference, but there is a CS on ptc support site that includes it.  

We're publishing from Windchill. Looking at the recipe file and help documentation, I'm not seeing anything super obvious.
