Discard of color

I have an issue with the color of some Plant 3D objects. Especially with stubends and valves. When they are inserted the don't appear in the color which is assigned to them. Even changing the color in the properties palette is ignored. Sometimes the valves have the right color and sometimes not. Even though it's the same valve. Stubends always appear white.

 

Is this a know bug?

 

Thanks

We've had some issues with this as well. It seems to happen with custom content or block based components. It retains the color set inside the block and once it's converted, the color cannot be changed.

Hi Jason,

 

thanks for the feedback. This could be part of the problem and I will test it with the customers specs and catalogs.
