Doors not visible in 3D

DangCad1

I'm working on a project where the doors are not visible in 3D view or elevation, only the openings. 

They are visible in plan, and the doors are objects from the standard library (not "Empty openings" etc). 
What might be the problem here? See screenshots

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, none of those seem to be the problem here. See screenshots below.

In you new screenshot there seem to be windows and door frames present, only the door leafs are missing. Is that correct? How does your Library Manager UI look like? Any warnings?

No, neither door frames or leafs for the interior walls, but the exterior door is fine (both door leaf and frame). If I eye-drop the exterior door (which is visible in 3D) to one of the interior doors, the dimensions of the door change but still no door frame or leaf.  So the problem seems to not be about the object, but something about the walls?

The Library manager looks like this, the only missing object is a zone stamp.

Check the Model View Options for the display level for doors and windows in 3D.

The MVO I have applied to the 3D view is "Drafting", for which the settings look like this. Can't find anything there that specifically applies to 3D views. However, since the exterior door is showing (Both leaf and frame), the MVO shouldn't be the problem here?

I don't have that setting unfortunately (using Archicad 19)

As @Miha_M told you look into those missing doors in your Built-in Libraries as your screenshot tells us.

Thanks for your reply. As you say, the library menu contains the "missing doors" section (not specifically realted to built-in libraries though) but it's grayed out and I can't click it or get any information about it. 

However, I don't think that's the problem anyway because:

A. When I check Library manager, the only missing object is a zone stamp.
B. If I drag-copy a wall with one of the empty door objects out of the house, the door appears in the wall (see screenshot, red marking is the original wall and blue is the copied).

Rather, there seems to be something interfering with the door objects but I can't figure out what. The walls in questions are trimmed to the roof, but clearing all connections doesn't do a difference. When turning all the layers on, no objects are interfering with the doors in question.

I don't know, maybe we reached a dead-end here?

Yeah I think so ( a dead end ) but pls let’s know if you found the logic behind your case.

Eliminate the Trim to Roof (which is some kind of a SEO operation) and try to use the  "Crop to Single Plane Roof..." operation - if it's one or more single plane roof elements you have above. The Trim to Roof command can be tricky if the roof elements don't cover the whole trimmed wall element. I never had any issues with trims and doors though, but worth a try.
