That door is taking part in some sort of connection (Solid Element Operation?) - you can see the grip icon in your image.
Maybe that is why it can't save as a favourite?

Dear Martin,

Thank you very much for the report!

I looked in our database, and there was a similar case with saving a door as a Favorite. We found out that the door used a marker that was not found in the loaded libraries, thus Archicad failed to save the door as favorite. I'm wondering if that's the case here?

If not, I would like to ask for the file for further checking. Please let me know if you need a secure place to upload the file also!

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
Minh

Hello,

Thanks for the reply,
Yes a secure place would be good. The same happens with one of the window.

Thanks a lot.

Kind Regards
