Partial Structure Display not working

Ruben Groot



I've upgraded a project form AC 24 to AC 25 but somehow the partial structure display is not working anymore. It's showing the Entire Model for each setting. Anyone encountered the same problem or knows how to solve this?


Thanks, Ruben

Hello Ruben,


Checked on Archicad 25 INT 4013 this is not working when changing through this tab.



Representation still works if you create new 3D view in View Map and change it's drawings settings. 


This is truly a bug.

Dear All,


Thank you very much for the report and I am very sorry for the issue!

This is a known issue, registered as DEF-7764. This happens with certain projects only. As you described, some of them may have a problem when changing the Model View Options, Partial Structure Display, or making the Structural Analytical model visible in 3D view. The model is not updated with the change.


The affected files can be fixed with Open & Repair in the next Update 4 for Archicad 25. Meanwhile, please contact your local support with the affected files, so that they can be repaired using a special developer build. The workaround for this issue is to change these options in 2D, then press F5 to carry the change to 3D window.


Thank you very much for your understanding!

Best regards,
