Make sure you selected the option in the uncut elements tab and not in the cut elements. (that happens to me once ) and also make sure the trace and reference is off, or at least has the transparent fills and zone option off.
Can you give us a screen shot of the elevation marker in plan view, and the elevation view itself? I would be checking the Distant Area option (everything might be beyond the Distant Area line). Also check your renovation filter is not changing the materials.
