When I orbit in 3d view, the model changes to wireframe.

When I stop orbiting, I have to click the "Shaded" button again, even though it's already selected.

So, basically, every time I orbit, the shading disappears. After orbiting, I hit "Shaded" again to turn on shading.

I come from Archicad 18, where it worked fine.

Is this some setting, maybe?

Even for just a single wall or column?
I am wondering if it is a video card or lack of memory issue.
What are your machine specs?

Ok, I'm getting closer.

If I start a new project, it works fine, so that has to be something related to the file being created on archicad-18 and I'm now working in archicad-20.

I remember I saw a question to update my libraries or something, which I sadly declined.

Is there some way to bring up that question dialog box again?

Go to the HELP menu and check for updates.
This should check for both library and Archicad updates.

Hmm, not helping.

This is so frustrating;) If I make a new file and make some walls and the try to orbit, everything is working fine.

There must be some settings screwup here.

Can I reset all settings?

If not, can I somehow export everything and then import in the new archicad file?

Ok, I'm getting closer.

If I create a new archicad file, then orbit is working as expected, but if I add like 30 more walls, the same thing happens.

It seems it does this, because it thinks my cpu/gpu is not powerful enough.

Is there any way to override this? I can handle it being slow, ie
