Recently, I upgraded to 2020 pro from 2019 pro. I have several folders with custom colors and materials that I use for our products.
when I moved my custom materials into 2020, my materials show up in the material panels, but when I open a folder of my materials strange things happen.
the material icon selected comes in the upper left panel, but theIcon it doesn’t reflect the actual color in the material group. The material group shows the correct color, but as you click on each indiciual material in the folder, the icon in the upper left corner doesn’t change. The description changes, and when you go to edit, the color is is as it should be.
However, when I paint with the selected material, it paints the same color no matter what material I use in that folder. I can adjust the color on the edit panel, but it doesn’t change the color painted.
Example, I have made color and texture panels for metal roofing for the company we purchase the metal from. All the colors are represented in the panel with the selected folder, but its always a red color in the upper left panel, no matter what color I select.
I haven’t seen this with Sketchup standard materials, only with the materials I have created.
Any ideas? I even reloaded all my materials from my cloud, but no change. Never had an issue with these materials before, weird.
I can recreate these materials, but was hoping there was a setting I could click without have to recreate all these materials.
