Archicad 23 does not open DWG - decomposition or merging does not help

Not applicable
Archicad 23. I can neither open the dwg file (empty floor plan screen), nor combine (merge) an open file (both a working one and a new empty one) with a dwg file, and also when I insert dwg through the Drawing tool (the file is inserted) and the subsequent to the command "Decompose as it is" - everything also disappears - void. Moreover, if I choose to save dwg layers during decomposition, then they appear in the list of layers, but nothing on them.
I tried in version 22 - everything works. what magical appeared in the new 23rd version?

See the post here by Minh.

When you explode a DWG, it acquires a "New" renovation status, so you have to make sure a renovation filter that shows new elements is active.
