Design/ Modify Curtain Wall / Extract Boundary to fill
to edit the perimeter boundary of a Curtain Wall in Elevation
However in AC23 I'm not seeing that Command in the menu system and I've tried switching back to the ArchiCAD default Work Environment. So how do I go about editing the boundary of the CW to follow the lines drawn in the attached screenshot?

I do miss the 'extract boundary to fill' method as it was brilliant for quick mock ups with CW.
That said: open your elevation, select the CW and click 'edit'. You should see a sort of 'layer' menu. If you show 'scheme grid'and hide the other options, you are left with a box 'fill' that you can edit as any other polygon in ARCHICAD. Hope that helps!
The "Fill to CW" group of functions is still in ARCHICAD, but they are now hidden:
you just need to go to Options > Work Environment, then go to "Menus" and if you try to organize functions by theme you will find the folder "19 Curtain Wall":
All the old functions are right there, you can place them in your own work environment!
