Wall Ends -- surfaces?

I can't seem to find where to change the surface color of a wall end to match the wall--thanks.

The Wall End tool places one of several (GDL) library 'well end' objects.  So, like any other object, you need to select the wall end and open the object settings dialog (cmd-T).  Surface is under the 3D Representation panel. 👍

Which one?

They are all a bit different.

The one that returns wall skins (Returned End) should pick them up automatically and you can't set any surfaces.

The others all seem to have a "Surface Override" in the parameters.

Ah: "Surface Override", missed it
