Shaded view in idw

When shading in an Inventor 2013 idw the display shows the shade incorrectly as some kind of sky representation (see attached). I wish for this to be displayed correctly as a grayscale shade, please can anyone tell me how to change this ?

Most likely your material is reflective.  Change the reflection image in your COLORS options, or make the part non-reflective.

Hi, thanks for your reply, I have changed the reflection environment in options - colours however this has not changed the shade.

Do you have some kind of texture applied to the part?

I have just checked the part itself and the there are no appearance overrides on the part, the part has steel material applied and the shaded view in the part seems fine, it when in the idw that the shade is incorrect.
