Having problems applying colors to walls.

I'm having troubles trying to apply colors and textures and things to my walls. When I click and drag the color to the wall instead of coloring the wall it is coloring the sky that color. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug in the program? Please Help.

Drag your paint to the very top of the wall. (very top corner) this usually works for me.

Was told it has to do with the graphics card - changed from Nvidia 6000 series card (with latest drivers, they did not help) to ATI Radon 1850 Pro, problem wnet away but still having issue painting surfaces, turns out you cant make a column by making a very thick wall as the two sides that are based on the thickness of the wall will not maintain their color between saves and helicopter 3d flyarounds - what a pain to figure this out - good luck. Customer support was helpfull in the first case, but disapointing how difficult simple task are with this sw package, and how it blanks the screen all the time when laying a foundation, you have to work blindly a lot - totally unacceptable for this cost of a package!!

Can you wash your hair before applying texturizer

Hello! Oh please never wash your hair before you apply any chemical services to your scalp. The pores along your scalp remain open after washing your hair (think of it like your pores on your face opening when they are treated with water) in result any chemicals will cause burning across your head.

Best wishes with your upcoming texturizer, hope your hair turns out wonderfully and your scalp can remain happy too!

Hi there,

Try changing the screen resolution your display screen might be having trouble supporting the resolution you are currently using. If this does not work try updating the video driver for your computer.

To change the screen resolution:

Win XP:

Right click on the desktop -> Choose PROPERTIES -> Click the SETTINGS tab and change the resolution click apply and then ok

Win Vista:

Right click Desktop -> Choose Personalize -> Change the screen resolution click apply and ok

Win 7:

Right click the Desktop -> Choose Screen Resolution -> change it and click apply and ok

If the above steps does not work try going to the sony vaio support site and download the updated driver for your Video Display.

Hope this helps!

Hello, I recently bought some Mac eye/lip liner pencils, and am having trouble getting the color on my eyes.

Try applying your foundation before you apply your eye color. The powder will help the color set and make it last longer as well.

I cannot use fill colour for shapes, text boxes etc on either Word or Publisher -Office 2007 I click on fill colour but shape remains blank - a series of dots do appear around the shape.

Apply a different shape fill You can fill a selected shape (such as data markers, titles, data labels, or a legend) with a solid color, gradient, picture, or texture. You cannot use shape fill to format lines in a chart (such as gridlines, axes, trendlines, or error bars).

On a chart, click the chart element that you want to change, or do the following to select it from a list of chart elements:
  1. Click a chart. This displays the Chart Tools, adding the Design, Layout, and Format tabs.
  2. On the Format tab, in the Current Selection group, click the arrow next to the Chart Elements box, and then click the chart element that you want to use.
On the Format tab, in the Shape Styles group, click Shape Fill

  1. Do one of the following:
    • To use a different fill color, under Theme Colors or Standard Colors, click the color that you want to use. Tip Before you apply a different color, you can quickly preview how that color affects the chart. When you point to colors that you may want to use, the selected chart element will be displayed in that color on the chart.
    • To remove the color from the selected chart element, click No Fill.
    • To use a fill color that is not available under Theme Colors or Standard Colors, click More Fill Colors. In the Colors dialog box, specify the color that you want to use on the Standard or Custom tab, and then click OK. Custom fill colors that you create are added under Recent Colors so that you can use them again.
    • To fill the shape with a picture, click Picture. In the Insert Picture dialog box, click the picture that you want to use, and then click Insert.
    • To use a gradient effect for the selected fill color, click Gradient, and then under Variations, click the gradient style that you want to use. For additional gradient styles, click More Gradients, and then in the Fill category, click the gradient options that you want to use.
    • To use a texture fill, click Texture, and then click the texture that you want to use.
Tip If you don't like the change that you made, you can undo it immediately. On the Quick Access Toolbar, click Undo default.aspx?assetid=za101819851033, or press CTRL+Z.


I can`t apply textures to walls because sky takes it

usually programs like those require a higher video card. because of the detail and such. but it is costly, you would need a gamers card for that detail. I would say suffer it unless you can afford one for over $150. you might want to check the settings also on the program. see what you can do with it.
