Openings appearing as transparent ghost

Anonymous

I've looked in MVO, Renovation Filter, and Object settings, but still appear as transparent opaque. Ideas?

Check Graphic Override settings. It seems to me that the Surface of Doors may be overridden with a transparent Surface.

Checked that also, but it is set to "No Overrides". Adding more images of Graphic Overrides, Renovation Graphic Overrides, and MVOs for Doors.

What are the Building Material/Surface settings of the Door?

Set it to a color that another opening (a window) has set. The window shows the changes.

Showing the door versus window opening. Both are using the same material, yet the window shows it but the door doesnt.

I see both the doors and windows are set to 'Simplified' detail level in 3D in the MVO settings.
Try changing this to 'Detailed'.
The door may be set to use the MVO settings and the window may be set to use its own settings (and not the MVO).

My guess is that the doors got accidentally tagged as existing, which may have a transparent override. (Overrides are shown for existing elements.)
