Hey, a new Archicad user here
I am currently using the trial version of Archicad 20 and things are mostly fine except when creating glass walls, windows and doors. Creating the things are fine but when switching to a 3d view, these things are not transparent but are instead the normal grey walls. I have attached a photo of my 3d view settings which had the transparency box ticked.
Any input is welcome thanks

I can't really tell whether this image is a screenshot of your OpenGL window (the one you can move around the 3D model in), or it is a rendering output from PhotoRendering.
If it is an OpenGL window, then your problem is with material selection (there are multiple places where your materials are defined), if it is an output of PhotoRendering, then there is an option under PhotoRendering Settings called "Use white model effect". Looks like a checkbox. If checked, it will override all materials and create a rendering in the solid shades of gray (like paper model).
Other than that, it is hard to tell based on the images attached.
As your model is displaying the same material for everything visible you might want to check you haven't got a Graphic Override operating. Go to the bottom of the window and for the graphic override combinations select "No Overrides"
