How to make the projection lines from the beam visible on the column?

I don't understand what you are showing in the image.
Any chance you can translate it please?
Is that a plan or a section/elevation as per the post title?
Also what version of Archicad are you using?
The answer may be dependent on the version.

This is a cut. How to make the beam projection lines visible on the column?

You want the beam to cut the post.
You won't get a dashed line as you have drawn manually.
If your column has a stronger Building Material than the beam, the column will cut the beam (as in your image.
But if the beam has a stronger building Material than the column, then the beam will cut the column.
Note the faces of the beam and column must align to see this in elevation.
You can not see the hidden line if the faces are not aligned - you will have to draw that yourself with a line.
Make sure you do not have surface overrides on.
If you do, it should still look like this unless the beam and column surfaces are the same.
In that case you will see no lines at all.

Thanks Barry for your answer, I need to display exactly the invisible contour lines of a beam or column, I know about the priorities of building materials, but they do not give me the desired result, it's very strange that such a program does not have this function, since usually these lines are required in drawings

My faces columns and beams are on the same line

Unfortunately, Archicad does not have the ability to show hidden lines automatically.
The only time it can is now in 25 (maybe 24 also?) with beams under slabs in plan.
There is a Model View option that can control hidden lines for beams under slabs.
But nothing for hidden lines in elevation.
