Hi there,
I would like to know how to change a colour of lumion material library.
I picked MISC section... Picked Exterior walls.. and now I would like to use that.. but change the colour.
Also, does anyone have a good setting for Glass ( shop front glass )
Appreciate any help.

Changing the color of a Lumion Library texture directly in Lumion is not possible.

Your option would be to find a similar texture or create your own with the desired color (as well as make a normalmap for it).  Then change the texture for the Misc material or set the material to a Custom --> Standard material.  

Note that most Lumion Library textures are from 3rd party and so are under license.
----------

Good settings for Glass would depend on requirements of the scene and what type of glass is to be used for the shop front etc.  Is it going to be colored, what depth of transparency, etc?

For general settings, something like:  Transparency: 0.6 to 0.9, Reflectivity: about 0.8 and control overall reflection by adjusting Minimum Reflection: say 0.2 or more, if too high for both reflection settings, you tend to get too strong a reflection of the surrounding scene, unless the interior shop area is has a natural dark lit area.

You need to experiment a little, and also do a few test renders to see what the final look will be like.
