Area2d doesn't detect CharacterBody2D after i changed godot 3.5 to godot 4.0

This is my code:

func _on_dialog_detection_zone_body_entered(body):
	label.visible = true

func _on_dialog_detection_zone_body_exited(body):
	label.visible = false

I started coding on godot 3.5. Everything worked great for me there. I’m using this code to display text when a character approaches an NPC. After switching to godot 4, Area2d stopped detecting CharacterBody2D, please help me understand what is wrong with this. I tried reconnecting the body_entered and body_exited signals, but that didn’t help. I checked, the collision layers are ok. I tried adding an Area2d node to the character and using the area_entered signal, but that didn’t help either.

is monitoring set to true on the area?

yes, I tried changing this parameter to false and then back to true. that didn’t help

Are there green symbols next to the functions in the script?

Yeah, there are green symbols. The signals are connected

Have you tried swapping the Area 2d and corresponding kinematic nodes from scratch?

Double check your physics layers and collision shapes.

Some shapes like Capsule changed their size after conversion

Thanks. I checked and found the problem)

Oh, I just mixed up the purpose of the collision layer and the collision mask

Description in documentation:

The physics layers this CollisionObject3D is in.

The physics layers this CollisionObject3D scans.

But I specified a collision layer instead of a collision mask in my Area2d. And because of that, Area2d couldn’t detect that the body had entered. So I just changed that to collision mask for Area2d and collision layer for CharacterBody2D and it worked.

Strange that this worked for me in godot 3.5 =)
