Line order is messed up in sections

For some reason while in a section view Archicad puts further and thinner lines on top of the main lines that are being cut.

Is that a single chair object (if so, is it in the standard library - which one is it)?

 

Or is it all separate elements?

If separate elements, it may depend on the order in which they were created.

You may have to adjust the display order of each element.

It is in a standard library, the element's called Audience seating. But the actual problem is much worse because you can see stair lines overlapping and manually fixing display order does not help at all.

I am not sure what is happening for you.

When I cut a section through that seating, it all looks fine.

It feels like it happens when the project gets larger and I guess it just become harder to handle a hierarchy of all the lines for Archicad, because when I started the project from the beginning the problem was gone.

But then later in the same project the same issue started happening again but now it's with happening with beams. Why can't just lines that are cut be over all the other lines?

Alright I guess i just found a workaround.

So what i did was i copied the beams that caused the problems. Ruslan2_1-1682946520048.png

Then i removed the old beams that do not display correctly

And moved the beams that were copied to the right place.

That solved the problem for me. So I think what's going on is when you copy some object it forces it to be displayed on top of all the other objects and you can't really change its order with this buttons because i tried multiple times and it just didn't work.

But i would really like if archicad did not mess the order of lines every time i copy some object. Can you please look into this issue

The display order should not get messed up.

Especially for the chair as it is all one object, so display order will have no effect.

 

Can I look in to it - no sorry.

I don't have a large model such as yours and it may be specific to your file or machine setup.

If you have a Select Agreement or subscription then you can contact your local Archicad support and see what they say.

 

Otherwise, if anyone else here has any ideas, please share them.

 

You don't say what operating system or machine specs you have.

I can see it is Archicad 26.

Do you have the latest update?
