Hi there,

There are 2 different features:
1 - Decorator Palette: if you included the colors / textures of your walls in your palette and you used the palette to apply the colors / materials, then you can replace the walls' colors / textures with other materials and all the walls where you used the same finishing will change at once. Example => say you used yellow paint on the walls of 3 rooms of your project => if you drag and drop green paint in the palette slot (where the yellow paint is), then all your yellow walls will become green.
2 - SmartWand: If the SmartWand is activated (3D => Enable SmartWand) => apply the desired color / material on a wall => you will have 3 options:
- Here Only (just one wall)
- All walls in the current room
- All walls in this structure => this option will change the color / material of all the walls in the current level of the project.

... right... ok... so the key to utilizing the Designer Palette is to use it from the onset to apply and distribute the Colors/Textures to your plan... that's how the palette links the materials you use to the various components in the plan. That would explain why I couldn't get it to replace colors... simple!

Definitely a workflow detail that you develop if you plan to do a lot of designs!

Thx much as always for your time and expertise!

Hi there,

You're welcome! :-)

Even for one design, it is worth to use it. You can try different combinations, materials and colors with just one touch.
