Textures not showing



Hi there, 

I'm having trouble getting textures to apply to my walls, extrudes etc correctly. 

I'm in Open GL 

I've set the texture in the Class AND in the render tab, but there are so many options there that I don't understand. Can you offer any suggestions?

Have you checked the Navigation palette class and layer settings?

class and/or layer visibility setting, an objects texture won't display when they are set to grey,

class and or layer options,  if set to grey others, grey/snap others or active only, only the active class and or layer (depending on your settings) will display textures

Thanks @jcogdellThe class and layer are both switched on. I don't know what else to do. I've watched videos and know how to set the render settings for left, and right side of walls, I've tried all these but still they are transparent, as are my window frames. I've attached screenshots so you can see what my settings are. Any other suggestions?

Tip: I have found that viewports 'forget' to display textures when rendering in GL. After checking all of the usual suspects - see settings described above, if still no textures in the rendered VP, then go into design layer and choose drop down render menu to GL options and you will usually find the show texture button toggled off, just toggle to on, render and return to VP - all is good again. VW VPs seem to forget textures occasionally.

Hi, I notice you have walls set by object, this really only deals with one wall at a time. If yo use by component and set your wall style the same way (and draw walls clockwise) yo can change all of the same wall styles in one go.
