Library Part Maker not transferring parts to other projects

I have made a window and when I check it, ArchiCAD gives me the green check mark. When I try and use it in another project file, the window comes in as an empty opening. When I place it in the Part Maker template file in a wall, it works. I tried to see if I could import the example window and the same problem occurs. So, does anyone know why I cannot use my Part Maker windows in other project files besides the Part Maker template that it was made in?

If I recall correctly, LPM (or at least the some part of it) has to be
loaded in the project for LPM objects to work correctly. I think it was
in the documentation for LPM.

I didn't see anything in the LPM for ArchiCAD 20 User Guide which explained how to install it at the beginning. I followed its steps on installing. I am not sure why it isn't working?

In the Applications/Graphisoft/ArchiCAD 20/Library Part Maker 20/ there is the Library Part Maker 20.lcf file. Maybe this needs to be one of the loaded libraries in the project file.

That's it David! I don't know why I didn't try that before. I thought I looked everywhere. Anyways, once I install that in the Library Manager, the empty opening turned to the window that I imported. I just tried this with the stock window example in the template, so I guess I still got some experimentation to do with my own windows and such. I guess that just would come down to drawing it correctly in the template.

Thanks guys!
