Hi,

 

I am pretty new at all of this, so please help. I don't really know what I did, but when I want to print out my 2D project all openings (windows and doors) and elevetion lines are in red. This was not so before I did something. 

Can anyone help me?

 

Thank you

If you mean the swing lines in plan, the pen colour is controlled in the Model View Options.

The elevation opening lines I think are controlled in the door/window settings.

I am not 100% sure as I don't use Graphisoft doors and windows, so I would have to investigate.

 

 

If you are saying the lines look OK in Archicad, but are a different colour when you print then that is to do with pen sets.

I won't go into explaining that now, but if that is the problem, I will go into more detail.

The elevation pen line colour is controlled by the plan colour I circled in the previous image, which is confusing as it clearly says "on plan" and there is a separate section for elevations.

 

However in each object you can override the MVO settings for the elevation lines.

Hi Berry,
thank you so much for your reply...unfortunately it didn't solve my problem. As you can see, i did fix one doors partially. I tried to do what you recommended on the windows but it didn't happened anything.
Any more suggestion?

The MVO controls the door swing colour (can be overridden in the object as well).

The door leaf and frame colours are set in the object.

Elevation pen colours can also be controlled in the object settings.

I am not sure about the door swing colour in elevation as I don't use these objects.

Maybe someone else knows without me having to hunt around.
