Import Export of Window and Door Marker

Anonymous

I am wondering if it is possible to import or export Window and Door marker? Because i am using AC15 Int and an affiliate uses AC Norwegian and therefore there files contain Door and Window marker which i wanted to import into my own file (int version). For instance in the Window setting, under Dimension Marker option there is an option to "Load Other Window marker" but I have no idea where and how to find that marker.
So I am thinking of exporting the Window Marker from the AC Norge .pla file (although I have no idea how) so that i can import or Load it into my AC Int file.

Is that possible?

What could be its file extension?

I hope someone could help me.

Thanks

Do in this way:
1. Open the .pla file with a NOR objects
2. Select " Extract Elements to a Folder" option
3. Make a new folder of your choice when asked to do it
4. All libraries in the .pla file are extracted there
5. Open that folder and search for the sub-folder.....\ArchiCAD Library 15\ArchiCAD Library 15.lcf\Object Library 15\3. MACROS 15\Marker Macros 15\

Rename the "Marker Macros 15" folder to "Marker Macros 15_NOR". Inside it you will find the NOR D/W Marker objects. Add a NOR to the object names (rename "gs_DW_Marker.gsm" to "gs_DW_Marker_NOR.gsm" and so on).

Now you can add that NOR Marker objects to your .pln file, using "Load Other Window marker" command!

thanks andro55, but it didn't work with me. my folders are quite different than you've told me though i was able to find the macro file that way (in a different folder names and path). copying it through library manager didnt work for me. what i did simply is opening the .pla NOR file and then copy the wall with the window containing the NOR marker by the use of CTRL+C from .pla and then CTRL+V into my .pln. and there i have it. hehehehe
