Try to adjust the frame thickness in the red circle (1.) and/or shift the window leaf towards the window frame (2). Windows in my region don't have such a huge gap between the frame and leaf edge, example here:

The distance you are missing (in green) is the inner side of the window reveal, which you can control, but only by controling the outer reveal size.

I don't understand the language in your settings pictures, but I think your window frame thickness is the problem. The sill is formed on the edge of the window frame, but you window has a very thick frame, which leaves a big gap between the sill and the window leaf.

This is Swedish.  I tried to find this setting(frame thickness) but i couldn't find out where is it

I minimized frame thickness but still I don't think this is right how this should look like.

Do you know how to make smaller the window frame ? It's lock on 20 mm

That object seems broken for what you want, unfortunately I don't have an answer.

 

I did want to point out the "Missing" element is part of the wall thickness and is adjusted by the Reveal depth setting, which is common to all opening objects e.g. the inset from the wall face to the face of the window.

 

You may already know this, but I thought it might help.

Thanks, I'm just scare that I have 60+ windows with fail 😕 

Anyway thanks for explaining.

You are right 👍 Thanks I sett 20-50mm and looks much better.

 

Big thanks 🙂
