3D Document Settings

Please help,
I have created some 3d Documents for shadow diagrams, as attached
In one view, renovation filter - existing, the shadows are fine.
In the second view, renovation filter - planned, some of the shadows show darker.
I have checked the settings, layers and all are fine.
I have tried regenerating the document, but the same occurs.
If I can't redo the view how am I suppose to correct this?
The error only happened when I change the setting for the shadow pen and background colours

I'm guessing it might be your 'Renovation Override Styles' in your Renovation filter settings dialogue.
They are probably set differently for 'Planned' and 'Existing'.

I had already tried changing the renovation filter on the view. If I switch to existing, it is ok. When I switch back to planned, some shadows are darker.

I am not an expert with reno filters as I don't use them.
But if you need the 'Planned' filter for your view then you will need to look at the override settings in that filters so you fills are not being changed.

Otherwise just switch to the 'Existing' filter but make sure you make the change in the View Settings dialogue so it can be saved with the view.
Just changing the filter will change what you see on screen but as soon as you open a view again it will reset to what was saved in the view settings.

Thanks Barry,
Seems it was the override function in the renovation settings.
Looks ok now.
But I hadn't changed this before, so don't know why it did this. And the shadows that changed colour did not relate specifically to any renovation filter.
