    For context, I copy-pasted spawnroom and I changed all the properties so it works properly, but when trying to retexture so it alligns with the team using the Toggle texture application -> Replace textures it ended up replacing texture on all the brushes with the original texture, not just the ones I marked. So after some googling I found that there's this option "Replace in marked objects", but I'm not able to choose it. Any advices? Pic related

    "Marked objects" are brushes or brush faces that are selected at the time that you do the texture replace. It is only available if you have objects selected. If you clear your selection, such as by pressing the ESC key or clicking on an empty space, then there are no marked objects and you cannot choose that option. To select multiple objects, hold CTRL while clicking on objects. To select everything in an area, click and drag in a 2D view to form a selection box. Pressing enter will select everything within that box.

    Hey, thanks for the reply!

    I tried that before, but your reply prompted me to try it again and I found out that when I mark the objects and and go to Replace textures through Toggle texture application, it doesn't work, but it does work when I mark objects and go through Tools window and directly to Replace textures.

    More likely there is some mistake I haven't been able to find lol, but hey found some way. Thank you once again!!!
