Hi,

I am using AC 24.
In section, the wall, slab, roof line is not showing in section.
If it is in auto update mode, it is coming like this.
I have attached the image.

Thank you

In the section settings, check to see if the 'Uniform pen for cut elements' is turned on and the cut line pen is set to white maybe?

Looking closer at the image it seems as if the lines are there, but instead of being a solid line, they are dotted lines?

Are other sections like this too?
Is the floor plan like this?

You don't seem to have any Graphic Override active - but do you have a Renovation Filter active?

No horizontal section is correct, but all the vertical sections are like this only in this file.
No floor plan is correct only.
Graphic override - no override.
No renovation filter is not activated.

By "horizontal" and "vertical" sections, you mean in plan, a section drawn horizontally is OK but a section drawn vertically is not?
If so what happens when you rotate a horizontal one to be vertical or a vertical one to be horizontal?

Yes horizontal section drawn in plan is coming correct, but when I rotate it to vertical it is not coming.
When I take the new section line also, it is not coming properly the lines and all in section. I tried all the section settings, but it is of no use.

OK, I am baffled then and have no idea of the cause.

I have only one more question.
Is it just this file or all files it is happening to?

Only for this file.
Other file it is correct.
I don't know why it is coming like this.

I have not seen this before.
All I can suggest is there is something wrong with the file.
You could try to repair it.

Save what you have done - if it is important.
Then close the file but leave Archicad running.
Now open the file from the FILE menu > Open > Open (browse for the file).
There will be an option to "Open & Repair Selected File".

If that does not work then I have no idea what is happening.

In my experience, Sections look like this when duplicate elements are in the same position.
You should check whether those walls, slabs, and roofs are duplicated. Probably the "Check Duplicates" Goodie is the best tool for that.
In Section, it is easy to check: just select and delete one of those Walls. If it is a duplicate, one of the duplicates with be deleted, and that Wall will be displayed with correct cut pens.
