Hi

 

You can try to create the window as a rectangular one (without the diagonal side) and then Convert selection to Morph(s). Once you have done that, modify as desired, select it all and go to File Menu> Libraries and Objects> Save Selection as...> Window... as described on this article: https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Design-articles/How-to-create-Custom-Window/ta-p/303432

In addition to Ricardo's suggests - which is great for a one-off - you can use the Libary Part Maker (LPM) add-on to create a custom window with that shape that is parametric.

 

This is the link to the US version of LPM...site search seems to be based on my data, so you'd have to modify for your country-specific (SWE) version:

And, this topic might be helpful if the created window does not load:

Hello @Vojtech Slavik,

 

I would like to suggest this Add-On for the development of atypical windows:

Also you can try searching in BIMComponents for "polygonal window" in the window settings search option.

I have not used this object but it may do what you want.

The very simplest answer I know is to use the CI Tools library, which allows exactly that window shape out of the box.

I think you might be searching in the object tool.

You need to be in the window tool.
