I know that LW has a preset material button such as glass or brass or other materials. For the life of me, I cannot remember the hotkey that pulls it up. I looked all through the manual but couldn't find the answer. Anyone know?

If you look under the windows drop down you'll see the preset button with the shourtcut next to it. [F8]

I did that and it comes up with "none". Is there a way to reload it?

Load on object. Open surface panel and try again..

I did and it still doesn't show anything. I'm also getting a funny looking camera view. It looks like a submarine target view or something. LOL I can't find the short cut key for that either. I want to get a normal clear view.

I also have allot more options on the left side now. Strange. What I did last night was push Alt or apple or control and every key that I saw searching for the material preset. i guess thats what happens when frustration sets in. Does anyone know the hotkey for a normal camera view in OpenGL?
