Alright guys, I have done a lot of searching and can't find an answer. When i go into creative mode and go to the inventory and select a stained elevator block from open blocks. It shows in my inventory with the color I chose, but when I place it on the ground it shows unstained. Is this a glitch or do I have to change a setting somewhere or use command prompts? If you know this has been answered before and can link the answer that would be great. I don't really want to do command prompts every time I selecting a stained block.
P.S. I can dye them after placing them is that my only option?
