Fill not changing color

StephenK
Contributor
Hello,

I am making a site layout and am using the fill command and can not get the color to change. I pick what color I would like but it does not change. I went into the Trace options and that was not it. I tried creating new layers, new fills, and still nothing. Don't know if there is a setting that is blocking this or what. I provided a screenshot with the problem too. (I'm working in ArchiCAD 18)

It cannot be the "Make Fills & Zones Transparent" button in the Trace & Reference Palette because that would make it transparent, not white.

As far as I could figure out, I can think of two possible causes:
1. The active Renovation Filter overrides the Fill, and the override style is set to override the Fill with a solid white fill.

2. In your screenshot, the Info Tag says that there are multiple elements there. So there may be a Slab there, which is in front of the Fill in Display Order, and it has a white solid Cover Fill, which hides the fill color of the Fill element behind it.

Yes! The active Renovation filter was it. Thank you!
