When doing visualization in BIM, there might be a need for quick surface overrides, that is why ArchiCAD 19 has introduced a new palette called Surface Painter which is used to paint surfaces directly in the 3D window. To access this palette go to Window > Palettes > Surface Painter.

With this floating Palette Surfaces can now be changed with just a click, Designers can Pick a surface  from Surface Painter, then hover their mouse on the element to get instant visual feedback supplemented with a pop up menu showing information which Surface is going to be overridden and by clicking on that element the surface will be painted. See attached image and video clip.
