Door Hinge markers showing and can't get material to show 3d

Hello everyone, I am pretty new to ArchiCad. I have a layer turned on that is making the door hinge points as well as little blue arrows on the windows. I am also having problems assigning materials to my floors/slabs. Thanks for any help in advance!

What you have turned on is a setting in your Model View Option (MVO) which control the display of opening lines among other things.

In the Slab Settings > Model panel > make sure the Override Surface button is active (grey), then the Surface pop-up list to change the Surface(s) will be available.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Ok so I have actually gone into the model and made these changes and it worked. Thank you again. Greatly appreciated. I went into the Document-Set Model View Options...-Miscellaneous Setting for Library Parts-Show Opening Lines in 3D Projections- Then I clicked the options off for doors, windows, and skylights. Just wanted to state this clearly for anyone else that is may have this problem.
