Add a pattern refresh tool to the Attached Pattern dialog window that would automatically step through all of the components in the selected library and re-attach their patterns using the currently-selected pattern library. If a pattern isn't found in the currently-selected pattern library, then the component of the moment would not be updated and the refresh tool's algorithm would increment to the next component in the component library's list. At the end of the refresh process, the user could scroll through the component list to find out which ones did not receive a pattern refresh (i.e. look for missing asterisks "*").

Advantages of implementation
* No special file/date/time stamping of component files is required.
* Replaces a tedious, manually-executed user function.
* Eliminates the chance of introducing errors when compared to the manual editing of ASCII files.
* Saves time and reduces the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome, especially when a library has thousands of components.
