How do I fix my wall color showing up as black instead of actual correct color?


Recommended Posts


I have tried to paint the wall colors. The brown wall color on the left is supposed to be what's showing on the wall color on the right, not black. I have confirmed in the open object the color/material is entered correctly. So I thought it might be a weird shadow thing. You can see windows right there on one wall and I've added a bunch of lights but it still shows as black. Anyone know how to fix this so that it shows the correct brown wall color instead of the black?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.
