assign material

I do not seem to be able to assign a material or change the color of a part. A right click on the part tab has no menu comes up. This is a new issue for me, it used to work ok!

    On top of what @brucebartlett said. Also make sure that you do not have anything already selected in the model space. You need to be in the Part Studio to the RMB on the part in the part list to edit its appearance and change its color.

    No. Nothing comes up when I do a right click.

    BTW this is a problem for all of my parts, so I must have some setting adjustment off.

    OK, 'problem' solved. Window on screen was reduced in size so that other things could be seen, but this resulted in the parts listing window not showing the actual part below it, so no pop up menu would show with a right click. Need to clean my glasses more often...
