I have added 70 fill colours in a .style file. For adding these colours to my shapefile i would have to manually go to properties/symbology/match to symbols in a style/ then browse to the location where my style file is saved, add it, click on Apply for the colours to change. I do not want to do this for each shapefile. Is there a script which when run would call this .style file and add its colours to the shapefiles in my workspace? Please help.
