i have a door with a custom door leaf and i also have a custom MVO to simplify doors and windows by hiding everything but the opening in 2D and 3D.

The problem is while it does a good job in 2d, in 3d its not working.
It is not hiding the door leaf or the masonry arch.

That setting is for the 2D display. Go to the Detail Level of Door, Window and Skylight Symbols panel in that same dialog box to control the 3D appearance.
