I don't know of any clever fixes. I do this every month, almost like 
chasing cats at first.
IF you are referring to graphs, I haven't been able to apply 
Find-and-Replace and that may apply to "line diagrams" also.
If the graphs are mostly the same, I've had some success with junking 
all but one, teasing that one to just the size/shape/colors/line 
width/etc I want, then duplicating it as needed, and re-establishing the 
data ranges.

Then LOCK the Ht/Wth. Get the positions right (you may be lucky and can 
use the Alignment menu for most of the work) and lock them.

This is important: do not Hide rows or columns that intersect the graph 
area, and do not make any of those rows or columns greatly wider, even 
briefly to see something better.  The positions and SIZES are very 
likely to change, and /not/ go back when you do Show.  I'm pretty sure I 
have seen this behavior even when everything is locked.

Good luck!
