In ArchiCAD26, the active floor is displayed in original color and the background link is displayed in grayscale. There was no other plan. where could the switch be? Video card NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8043 MB

International forum, english please,

You have a "trace reference / ghost story" display settings active. You have two sliders available, the upper one controls the reference story display visibility (intensity), the lower one controls the active drawing display intensity. You also have buttons for each of those, which you can use to set the display color (original vs. uniform in an rgb combination).

Where is the problem? Your picture shows the background in original color, but with low intensity, which most likely shows the traced reference in grey color. Try moving the upper slider.

they appear on my wall on the background link and on the active floor, but they are displayed differently. This is the crux of the issue. And of course I moved all the sliders.
Again. The wall on the background link should be colored like it is on the actual floor.

I see you are using a View as Trace Reference. Any chance that there is a Graphic Override set in that View that is causing this monochrome display for it?

Or if it is not a Graphic Override, is the view is set to use a greyscale pen set?

Or is the View using a Renovation Filter where all element Pens are overwritten to that gray Pen because of their Renovation Status?
