Does this happen if you open an existing IDF, or only for zones you make with the legacy plugin? It's possible you are drawing loose SketchUp geometry that isn't within a thermal zone, and that is why it is white.

I suggest that you try using sketchup 2014 with the current version of legacy openstudio (v1.0.14). There a bug of the plug-in when used with sketchup 2015 and 2016 related to unneccesary duplication of surfaces. I would have to verify again the issue to give you a better explanation. But so far, I donĀ“t think this issue has been solved.

@sooshhhh have you tried using Euclid (the renamed and updated version of Legacy OpenStudio)?
