In the Window Schedule > Scheme Settings... > Criteria you'll need to add Element Type is Skylight. But the Skylight's Fields will not match the Window's Fields, so a separate Skylight Schedule may work better.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Skylighs are displayed on the Floor Plan according to the settings of their host Roof/Shell element. Go to the Roof/Shell Settings Dialog in the Floor Plan and Section panel experiment with the Show On Stories, Floor Plan Display and Show Projection Settings of the Roof/Shell. You can also play with the Home Story setting of the host Roof/Shell. You should be able to achieve the desired 2D representation on the various Stories.

Could you tell me the Top 5 reasons you refer to your previous program as Vector....? I am quite familiar with the program so I have my own opinions but I would be interested to hear your experiences. I suppose you have worked a lot with it in real-world scenarios.
