Default [ICEM] Applying surface mesh settings

Probably a simple question but anyway.

I've selected some surfaces in the Surface Mesh Setup and have applied a maximum size. But I now want to have a smaller tetra size on these surfaces instead. But now when I open Surface Mesh Setup I have to reselect all the surfaces again and type in all the values - rather than just modify the single value I need to. It's as if I was starting at the beginning again.

There must be a feature, like in CFX-Mesh, that lists all the surface and edge sizing parameters so you only have to choose that and it recalls all the parameters.

You can collect all the surfaces of the same size into parts or subsets and then apply settings to those parts or subsets...
