Curtain wall - overrides not working


Hello everyone,


I have this problem with a curtain wall. As you can see in the pictures, although I've changed the settings for all frames to have an anthracite texture, for some reason the overrides are not applied. I've also tried to change the building material altogether with no success. It seems to be some sort of global override at play, which I can't find.


I should also mention that I'm using Archicad 25


Does anyone know what causes this?


Thank you in advance.😁
