I am new to Archicad and setting up my first project with pen settings suggested by Shoegnome (thank you.) Please forgive any basic questions.
I am unable to determine which parameter controls the fill for the pocket door void in a wall. It seems to be controlled by pen #91, which I have made yellow in the attached image.
My other settings for the doors, composite wall materials and the wall element itself seem fine. I can't find pen #91 anywhere in those settings. Can someone tell me how to turn off the fill in the pocket void?
One other question: Is it possible to change the global color used in the MVO > Override Cut Fills > Solid Foreground? I would like to use a color other than dark gray.

From the Help files (User Interface Reference > Dialog Boxes > Model View Options Override Fill Display):
Override Cut Fills: Check this box to override cut fill definitions. Choose one of these two options to define the display of all cut fills in the project.
• No Fill: Cut fills will not be displayed, except for their contour lines.
• Solid Foreground: Each cut fill will be shown in a single solid color, the one set for its cut fill pen in its element settings.
• Show Skin Separator Lines: Check this box to display separator lines of composite elements.

It works here: the color is controlled by the Building Material's Cut Fill Foreground Pen (see attached image).

In the Wall Settings dialog box > Floor Plan and Section > Cut Surfaces > Override Cut Fill Pens: change to Foreground, then change the Cut Fill Foreground Pen to the pen color you want to use.
