Coloring the Key Range to Match Mapped Samples

I'm editing a buggy instrument and have modified the zone mapping of some samples. I've set the key range accordingly in Instrument Options. So far, so good.

How do I get the keyboard at the bottom to reflect these range modifications?

Can I achieve that from within Kontakt and if not, what script would I have to modify?

Thanks for any pointers.

(I've searched for answers on google, but they seemed all scripting-related, even though it seems this might be possible from inside the interface.)

There's a factory script in "Utilities" called "Set Key Color".
hmm, I only see 3 scripts in Utilities in Kontakt 6.5.3 (6 Midi Controllers, Midi Filter and Midi Monitor). Is that a custom script, by chance? Could someone maybe share it?

It can be found in the NKI script editor (not in Multi Scripts). Not sure though if it really works when the keyboard colors are already scripted.

Ah, thanks, of course, that makes sense.

I gave it a try and in my case it unfortunately doesn't work because switching between articulations in that multi-articulation instrument will revert back to the original, now inaccurate coloring (makes sense, because normally with their bug-free instruments, switching between articulations updates the keyboard coloring to reflect the selected articulation's range, so it's not just a "set it and forget it" kind of thing). Oh well, it was still useful to learn this.
