wierd multiple window

Has anyone had this problem? I get banks of windows vertically when trying to do a regular double window in W Double Hung MU (USA).

All good here, but I've never used this window before.
Maybe you somehow changed something from stock?

Is it full, demo,edu?

Full. The window looks fine with selection setting defaults. The above screenshot happened when I injected parameters in from another window (W Double Hung 12) with normal settings.

The way the parameter transfer works is that ArchiCAD checks in the Target object if there is any parameter with the same parameter name (the name of the GDL variable seen only in the Library Editor Window, not the description you see in the Object Settings Dialog) and parameter type as each of the parameters of the source object the parameters of which you try to inject. If there is, it transfers the parameters, and it does this with each parameter.
Probably parameters in the two windows do not refer to the same things and this causes the above seen phenomenon.

Thanks, Laszlo -- always wondered about the logistics of that feature.

I've often wished you could pick and choose which parameters you wanted to transfer. It would be nice to inject casing and sill sizes and material only, for example.

Yes, I was wondering about the same thing.
On the other hand, an average Window has over 200 parameters, carefully hand picking which ones to transfer and which ones not sounds like a tough task. So it is a good question.
