Remebering customized settings for mixer and colors.

It’s super cool that you can customize your mixer and colors settings.
But when I open up another project the settings are back to standard…!?
How do I make Cubase save/remember my settings, so it will appear in all my projects?
I know that I can make a template when i start up new projects. But that doesn’t help my with already existing projects.

And another little thing, the “S” button won’t allow my to solo and un-solo a track when i’m working with an insert. This has never been an issue before. I have to press the “S” button with the mouse/curser to make it solo. It doesn’t work when I use the keyboard command (S).
