Some questions on the 3D and Material panel.

 

  1.  Is there a way to change the thumbmail for a material in 'Your Materials'?  So, despite changing the colours of the materials, the thumbnail remains the same, which is of course confusing...  I can't seem to just change the properties of a metaerial in My Materials without selecting the object.  I want to edit the material  itself and so the thumbnail has the same colour for eaxmple.
  2. How do you change the lighting so that it is freeform, not a preset?

You may need to create your own material in Adobe Substance 3D Designer for the thumbnail to change. You would add a new (as opposed to modifed) material by clicking the add material from Adobe Substance assets button or from Adobe Substance Community button. Here's more information:
