So I recently just started to notice a change that may have occurred a while ago in SU, and that’s the ability to apply textures and/or colors to lines. Say for instance I have a group, containing faces and edges (lines), and in that group, I want to apply a texture to the object, I could go about it one of two ways, either face by face or by ctrl+A and then apply the texture with one click. In the past, textures (or colors) were applied to the faces only (via ctrl+A), but now it’s everything, ultimately displaying a rather “muted” look to an object because the edges (lines) are colored or textured as well.
Is there a way to avoid this from happening, other than having to apply a texture or color, face by face? Granted when rendering (in Vray as I do), that issue become null and void, but for general modeling, it can get rather tedious, when I have a need to modify a model in a group, trying to find edges that I need to work with. I tried to find somewhere within SU, that an override could be applied, but haven’t found it.
Perhaps this is something to do with a style modification? In any case, any further assistance or suggestion, would be helpful.
