I have this issue with both Andersen windows and Jeld Wen windows.  I change the color of the window on the exterior from the default White to a Dark Bronze.  In the 3d view the color is now correct for each window that I change.  However the windows on the shaded elevation views are still white.  Since is consistent with both Mfg's I kind of assume that I missing some setting the elevation views but I can't find anything.  Hopfully one of you can help me out on this.

Most likely source of problem from most likely to least likely:1) Are elevations graphic display set to show colour?2) In visibility over-rides are window frame finish coour over-ridden?3) Has each individual window been selected and finishes over-ridden?4) Has a mask been drawn in elevation?5) Is elevation view set to wireframe?6) Open family in family editor. Are frames parametrically linked to frame material parameter?7) Is there any Option models or phasing in place in the view.Shadey Are you sure you are looking at the right elevation?this list could go on such is human diversity.
