Hello there , i need to change the 2D door representation to look like the standard Archicad door (Second image) , currently its only showing as single lines. As i wasnt the original creator of the template im not sure how i can change it back. Any help would be appreciated.

the floor plan look of a door is controlled in 2 places:
Model View Options (MVO) & Door Settings (which, if selected, overrides the MVO)

 

if you go the route of the MVO, you'll need to ensure that the Saved View is using that MVO.

if you go the route of the Door Settings, you'll need to override the 2D Detail Level to be whatever you need the scale to be, as long as "by MVO" is NOT selected.

the downside to the Door Settings route, is that you might have to do this to every door.
