Archicad Door Surface override

We have noticed that in recent versions of Archicad, sometimes Doors display with a homogeneous surface that can not be changed by any of the Door Settings.

Most likely the solution to your problem is that the affected Door object(s) have a Model Surface override applied. Unfortunately, this feature has been hidden in the latest Work Environment Settings that Archicad ships with.

To make this setting available again, please do the following:

  1. in Archicad go to Options > Work Environment > Tool Settings Dialog Boxes > Door Tool

  2. make the Model entry visible, by clicking on the Eye symbol;
  3. make sure you saver update your Tool Schemes, then update the Work Environment Profile to suit and click on Apply;
  4. return to the Door Settings, where you can now see previously missing Model section and untick the Surface override option…
