Limited amount of materials in Lumion?

Hi all,

I am exploring lumion, my employer probably going to buy us a license or 2 of it. I've imported heavy mesh of the villa into lumion and started to work on the surfaces, but after finishing the 3rd bank (row) of materials it wont start a new (4th) row, so i still able to assign new materials but i can't see their thumbnails and can't click the thumbnail to adjust settings of the material later on. Is it bug or there is some limit on amount of materials in lumion? Is there any way to re-enter into the settings of material i've created earlier other then selecting it's thumbnail from material bank at the bottom?

Thanks in advance for the help, regards!

In most cases nearly all materials for surfaces should be assigned in the modelling application, that's part of the basic approach Lumion takes, so that the Lumion materials added directly within Lumion are for things like setting glass, adding in some water etc, the rest are imported.

The row of Lumion added materials allows for 30 additional materials to those imported, so if you are up to 3 or 4 rows thats 90 plus materials!
