    Override Linked model wall color. Is it possible?

    I have a linked model that shows all wall green in the visual style: consistant color. I want to override that green to another color. Is there a wat to to this in my model? or do I have to go into the linked model and change it there?

    Thanks in advance.

    You should be able to override. Do you want ALL the walls in the linked model to be changed? Should be able to accomplish this in your visibility Graphics settings and/or a filter.

      Yes, you can override element's pattern (not material though).

        I want to override the colour to a specific wall type in the linked model.
        I'm looking everywhere in the VG settings but I cant seem to find it.

          To change the color of a specific wall type in a linked model you need to create a filter utilizing the wall type....it won't show up in the drop down list though since its in the linked file, but you can type it in, but it needs to be spelled/capitalization exactly as it is in the linked file.

            I believe to do this you need to set up a Filter for the Wall Type so it can be distinguished individually from other wall types.

            Then in the Filter settings set up color overrides for projection, cut lines, patterns, etc. Use a Yes/No setting in the Parameter for the Filter.
