Request help with changing material to a 3D part

I am having problems with changing the material to all of a 3D part in one go. 

All my attempts have only allowed me to change one section at a time.  ???

Please find below a 3D part I am working on.  Shown is that only one hole changed to the new material.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I am using TCPro Ver 16

Thank you,

How to do it:

Open the Materials palette. Activate Facet editing; select any facet of the part; press Ctrl+A, which selects all its facets. Right click in the Materials palette and choose "Set 'None'." Click in the drawing area to deselect the object's facets; press the Spacebar to exit the facet editor; then double-click on the object to open its Properties dialog. Click "3D" in the left side of the Properties dialog to access the object's material; open the Material list and select "None" (Category doesn't matter).

Now you can set new material/materials for the object using either its Properties dialog or the Materials palette or both.
