    How is the color applied and how are you trying to change the color?

    I don't know how the color is applied.
    I tried with filters...

    I copy/pasted some conduits into a new / blank file and I got the message attached.

    Start at Object Styles, then examine Visiblity/Graphics in each view. Object Styles defines how each category will appear in all views while V/G provides a way to make a view look different from the "global" settings. A view Filter can be used (via V/G) to further alter how some or all conduits look.

    I've done all of those, see attached.
    Some 1" and 1 1/4" conduits are still yellow, perhaps ignored by the filters. I suspect is something with materials as is shown attached in my previously post.

    Thank you!

    The order of filters matters. The higher in the list the priority given. If your filters find more than just the ones you think you're getting then they'll get overridden by a filter higher in the "stack" than another filter.

    Have you checked to see if the colors are overwritten by element?

    You can end the guessing game by sharing a portion of the model that is giving you trouble.
