Complex profiled beams appear transparent in plan

Not applicable
Hi everyone,

Since I'm new here, I hope I've put this problem on the right board.

In every plan, uncut complex profiles (as a beam profile) appear to be transparent.
I've tried everything to give them a solid; cover fills in beam options, graphic override combinations, change renovation filters, stacking combinations, but it stays transparent the whole time.

I know there have been problems with beam transparency in the distant past, but a normal beam can have a solid cover fill nowadays to get rid of the transparency.

Maybe it is a bug, or did anyone have a familiar problem in the past and know how to fix this?

Cover fills for beams only show if they are below the Floor Plan Cutting Plane.
