#303524
We've recently updated from SE 2012 to SE 2019.
All seems to be working well, however, when we load old projects (from SE 2012) the program does not allow to create stairs, railings and shapes. An error message is displayed: "This element is hidden in the current renovation status. You may change the status in the individual element's properties" (loose translation from the Polish language). However, I can't find this setting in the properties, probably because this is the Start Edition, which does not support "Renovation Feature with Element-level Statusing".
The current status is displayed on the lower info bar as "N/D" which roughly translates to "does not concern" or "not active". So I don't really know which status has been set and why does this happen at all.
Aby ideas? I really would like to make some new stairs in the old project ;).
