     I don't think it's possible...to me this is a huge flaw in the UX for Allegro 16.x...

    Hopefully some guru will show us how it can be done!

    In 16.3 Cadence introduced an Assign Color (Paintbrush icon) which was meant to replace the highlight command (although the highlight command was still available from the menu) but after a few commenst from users they decided to have both commands as icons and introduced the icons back in 16.5.

    The Assign Color lets you apply a color to items, the highlight let you apply a stipple pattern to items.
