Color By Scale

When a block contains an entity which color is set to 'ByBlock' it's possible to change the color of this entity in the block by applying a specific color to the block. So this way it's possible to color a block. The 'Color By Scale' command allows you to color blocks based on their size. First you will have to select the block after which you select two colors. The first color will be applied the smallest blocks, the second color will be applied to the greatest blocks. For all blocks in between a color will be applied which is between the colors you picked. The smaller the block the closer it's color will be to the first color you picked. The bigger the block the closer it's color will be to the second color you picked. So if you first select yellow and then select red, the smallest blocks will be yellow and the biggest blocks will be red. Medium sized block will be colored orange.
