window parameters in AC19

With the new forced hierarchy of window settings in AC19, I can't seem to find out where the setting is to choose the number of unit shown in a multi unit window.

In AC18, this selection seemed to only exist in the "All Parameters" option of the custom settings. This was a little hidden before, but at least existed.

Does anyone know how to get to it now? Thanks so much!

What is the exact name of the object?
The Horizontal Multi-Sash Window 19 has it both on the Shape and the Window Settings and Opening pages, so I guess you might be using a US-specific Window.

(You should update your signature t reflect that you are now on AC19.)

Thanks for the heads up on the signature!

Also, the window that brought this to light for me is the W Awning 1 MU 19. However, I also don't see a unit selection option for the W Fixed MU 19 window either.

Thanks!

Sorry, I am using the INT version so I don't have this Window.
Maybe someone with the US version can chime in.

No worries, hopefully someone else can help!

Curious then, what do you INT guys use for MU (multi-unit) fixed windows?

There is a Window called "Horizontal Multi-Sash Window 19", where you can specify the pane number, and also it has a "Multiply Units" checkbox, which you can check and then specify the number of units.
There is also a "Vertical Multi-Sash Window 19", which works the same way, only in the vertical direction.

Interesting! On those windows, which settings panel has the option for the number of units? (wall opening, connecting structures, etc.)

The Window Settings and Opening page of the object.

Ah, interesting again! Thanks Lazlo, that helps to know, but no option like that exists on my Window Settings and Opening page.

Is there a way to make sure that this option gets added to these objects on an upcoming Update?

The best would be for you to make a wish for either these options to get added or for the Window object to be included in the US library as well.

Or, you could download the INT version from myarchicad.com, extract its Library Container File and use the objects from there.

We're finding this difficult and troubling. We have used the US "Casement Window MU" for most of our projects for over a decade now (it's great for a horizontal row of windows), and, with the latest upgrade, it just doesn't work. There is no way to adjust the number of sashes, which is the only reason to use this object.

Has anyone found a work around to either get "All Parameters" to display, or to adjust the number of sashes?

Report it to your reseller as a bug.

For a work-around... Check out Nick Corina's video at
the bottom of THIS POST>

Follow his directions to revise & save an object. i.e.; Revise the window's
parameter for "Number of ___ Units".

EDIT:
Another workaround:
Open an instance of AC18 and create the window.
Copy and paste it's wall into AC19.
Eyedropper the window and place as needed.

Thanks for the work arounds, these are great. I've reported it to the reseller already actually, but I appreciate the idea. They said GS knows about it and should be fixing for the next update.

Your two workaround ideas with do the job (slowly), but it sounds like the problem ultimately is with the program, and it wasn't a "simple setting" that we were missing.

Too bad! Hope they get this bug fixed soon!
