I want to delete all materials on all meshes and only add one default material to all meshes? I tried the "Copy Material to Others", but it's not working.

I still have some materials somewhere. Like this in the box: Materials

EDIT: OK, I got it now. The problem was, that some objects were hidden. So the "Copy Material to Others" didn't worked. When you open the file, then first press "Alt + H" to unhide all objects. Then do the "Copy Material to Others". Save file and open it again.

  • $\begingroup$ What exactly is "not working" with Copy Materials To Others ? It does what is written in your first sentence. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I know this link. I tried that. It's the reason why I said, that "Copy Material to Others" is not working. I selected one object. Then I did this in the 3d view toolbar "Select > Select All by Type > Mesh". Then I deleted all materials. I added only one material. Then I clicked "Copy Material to Others". So, why I have this materials in the box? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ "Then I deleted all materials" - how did you deleted them ? Which materials did you delete ? "I added only one material" - where did you add it ? How do your actions differ from this example ? $\endgroup$
