I had a very simple desk model that I made a week or two ago. Today, I added a couple of boxes for drawers. They have the same surface and it looks fine in Modeler's OpenGL but in Layout the recently added geometry is a different color. It even renders that way.

I tried removing the suface shaders, checking for multiple polygons in the same plane, merged points, changed the surface name and a couple of other things and still the drawers are a different color.

Also, the wall doesn't seem to be reacting to the negative light I have in the corner... but that might just be light spill. Still, it seems odd to me.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Dana

okay, the problem was that the drawers were in a different layer. I'm not sure what was different about that layer that caused the wierdness, but it's working now.
