Dimensions of openings don't appear on the outside of a window but do appear on the inside.

In Archicad 23 it was possible to put dimensions on the outside. Can someone help us to figure out how to put the dimensions of the height on both sides?

You can show window marker via MVO regarding window section.

I am not quite sure what you mean by 'both sides', and you don't say what version of Archicad you are using if not 23.

 

You can add the window height to a dimension in the settings for the dimension in version 26, just like you could in 23.

Nothing has changed that I know of.

We use Archicad 27 now. 
The dimension details settings are on. On the inside of the window the dimensions show the height of the window. But on the outside the opening in the wall is smaller and we need the dimensions on de outside of the wall.

That means you want to dimension the window reveal.

As that is not the actual window size, that is why it does not show the height.

I don't know if there is a way to dimension the width and height of the window reveal, because I don't use reveals and i don't use the default Archicad windows either.

So maybe someone else can say if it can be done or not.

 

You can still dimension the inside nodes of the window and place the dimension on the outside (rather than dimensioning the reveal).

But if you do want to dimension the reveal, i am sorry i don't know.
