When I open the Property Mapping setting the IFC Translator is displaying warnings in a red colour. How do I fix this?
I have tried doing a new and reset but it creates the same warnings.
The reason I need this to work is that some elements when I export them as IFCs they are being listed in Solibri as "Unclassified" so I assumed it had something to do with the Property Mapping
On the screenshot which shows the IFC Properties, there is an IFC Rule which used to contain a property from property manager but it has been deleted which is indicated by the <> values.
I checked the standard UKI Template and this seems to be the default. In which some properties were in use for certain IFC Mapping Rules but have since been deleted. The quick solution is to simply click on the <> mapping rule and click the delete button.
IFC Properties shouldn't effect the classification of an element. This would have to be checked in the Type Mapping dialogue to see if an element lets say a wall is mapped to an IfcWall for IFC Exports.
The reason is that each Uniclass classification mapping status is set to by Parent. The parent is the Uniclass 2015 - May 2017 subheading which is set to IFC Type IfcBuildingElementProxy.
This means that every classification contained in the Uniclass 2015 - May 2017 table will be exported as IfcBuildingElementProxies (Objects) Therefore if you wanted doors that are classified as EF_25_30 Doors and windows to be exported as Doors you will have to set the mapping status to custom.
However due to Uniclass 2015 combining doors/windows under the same classification, if you were to set the above to custom followed by the IFC Type to IfcDoor this will actually export windows as IfcDoors as well.
Therefore I recommend to set the Source Classification System at the top to the standard one which is ARCHICAD Classification - 21 as this will export all elements to IFC correctly. E.g. Doors to IfcDoor, Windows to IfcWindow, etc.

Thanks for posting those screenshots. In my "Map IFC Types for Export" the list of types in my file is much shorter. I have messed something up but I think I can get it back as I have found opening the ArchiCAD 21 Template file has the same settings as your screenshots
