    Problem changing Colour after applying style

    Magicalwonders
      I'm making a graphic using the rectangle tool and applying a style. My problem is in trying to change the colour of the object once the style is in place. I've tried opting for different colours in the property inspector, but it seems to make no difference.

      I must be missing out a step, but can't find any clues in the help files!

      If anybody can point me in the right direction, I'd be most grateful.

      Many thanks,

      Myles

          Check in the Layers panel whether the rectangle is a path object or has
          been inadvertently converted to a bitmap.

          The color in the style you applied my have been created with the
          Hue/Saturation filter. Check the Live Filters box in the Property
          inspector.

            On further experimentation it seems that it's just style No.1 that refuses to change colour properly.

            All the other styles seem to be adjustable. I get a slight hint of colour change with No.1, but that's about it!

              Thanks Linda,

              I didn't see your reply before making my last post.

              It seems that there is a red cross showing against the Hue/Saturation in the live filters box. So I suppose that's why I've had so much trouble trying to affect the colour.

              I've tried turning it on but it doesn't seem to make much difference.

                Sounds like a badly made style to me.
