Changing a Wall and Roof to a window for scheduling ?

Not applicable
Hi I have used a wall and roof to create a butt jointed window.
I'd like to change the ID or type to be a window so it can be included in the schedule.
Is this possible ?

In the Help files see: Elements of the Virtual Building > Parametric Objects > Graphic Creation of Custom Library Parts and Components > Saving 3D Model Elements as Rectangular Doors and Windows to convert model elements into a window.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

This method looks like it turns it into a window that needs to be placed into a wall. I can't see this working for this particular situation.

Isn't there a way I can just tag it as a window ?

I think there is no way out.
Windows are coded to need a wall and not in gdl but in archicad itself so...trick it out, put a wall
