How do I change the material/colour of an item such as a slab that I have modelled in a project? It stays the bog standard grey and doesn't allow me to change it which is very confusing when numerious items are on the screen.

Try searching the forum .... use "color" & material instead of colour.

Go to Settings -> Materials.  From there it shows you all the materials in the project, you can make new ones and duplicates.  The thing with materials that I see alot of people forget is that everything you do with a material is like a type parameter, changing something about a material changes all things that have that material in that project.  So if you have some blue CMUs and some red CMUs you need to have two seperate types of CMUs.  You can pick the color it looks with the shading, accurender is used for when you render, surface pattern is how it will show in plan view, cut is how it will look in section.  A note on colors though is that the color you select and the color it will show are completly different, they look closer if you turn shadows on.  If you just need to change the material of like a floor, go into the properties of the floor, click edit new, and then click the edit button next to the "Structure" column.  In here it shows you what your system in made of and you here can change the material types, thickness and other parameters.  You can also manipulate how materials show, just as you did when you go Settings -> Materials.   Hope this helps
