Display colour in viewport

Recommended Posts

I have been given a textured file, which I'm pulling apart to understand how it was made. 


The file is unusually setup, the viewport only displays materials as grey, even though the textures, should contain patterns and bitmaps. Moving through the different display modes (quick shading, gouraud etc) doesn't change anything.

I can't see a viewport setting which relates to this (although probably have missed it)

Hard to say without scene file...

Have you enabled textures? (...viewport/options/textures)

Are the textures linked properly?
