Sliding Window Frame Surfaces (Inside/Outside)


I am using the "W Sliding2 25" Archicad library window object. 


I'm frustrated because the interior frame surface is displaying the exterior frame surface parameter. Please see attached photo showing the issue.


There is no issue with my fixed windows....only the sliding window. Has anyone else experienced the same frustration? Does anyone know any possible solutions?




The only solution will likely come from finding the gdl portion and correcting the material dictation.

Thank you very much for the report and I am very sorry for the issue!

Indeed this is a new defect with the object in Archicad 25. The defect has been recorded as DEF-8445. Meanwhile, I couldn't find any workaround for it.


Please let me know if you have any further questions, and thank you once again for your finding!

Best regards,
