where did my materials for this object go after I appended it to another file?

Hi all,

Sorry if this is simple and I’m not using the right vocab, I’m pretty new to blender. I appended an object with some quick textures applied into to a file with already existing textures, and I can’t see the texture for the appended object anymore. The texture still exists (also I tried deleting the materials and reapplying them), but doesn’t show up in the 3D port view. Does anyone know what’s going on?


Thanks in advance.

Not sure if this is it or not , but your viewport is set to solid shade. To see the materials, you would have to set it to material shade.
