Short description of error
When setting up Object Colors for objects and then instancing the collection that they are in, the instance object is overriding the object color with its own color.
This could be by design or an oversight but it hurts viewport pre-viz if object colors are heavily used.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Change the object color for the default cube
  • Instance the Collection the cube is in to the same scene
  • The object color of the instance should now be white
