Hello, I have a problem since I've upgraded to Archicad 23.
All new objects that I download (from pages such as 3darchive, archibaseplanet) seems normal in library, but when I place it it doesn't have any texture or colour - it's pure black. All of the older objects thah I've already had in Archicad 21&22 is normal.
I'd appreciate quick help, because I have projects to finish this month :(

Ola Bos:

One possible cause: look under the Model pane in the object's settings and see if Override Surfaces is selected.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.
