Simple,

just click on the checkbox of the custom metal panel, so it is not selected. and you can choose metals.
Custom metal is always selected, this has changed sinds Reality 3 I think. And it is very powerful.

Example!
Say you have a very nice armour suit and you want to give it a hammered look.
Download hammered metal and load it into custom metal and you will see you get a perfect hammered metal suit. (with proper bump and normal maps)
Read this small tutorial about the Custom metal panel.

this would be funny if it weren't happening to me :shock:
