Some wall extras objects won't load

Anonymous

Hi!
Some objects in Wall Extras are not accessible in the Object Tool. They are normally listed in the Library Manager. I have already tried to remove/add again and reload the native object library (and a brazilian library as well to check if the library file was the problem), and I also embedded the object in the project and tried to load it from there and started a new project with the default template, but nothing works.

While testing to check the issue, I exported the object through the Library Manager and tried to import it from the Object Tool, but received the message "The selected file is not a General GDL Object file. Please select a valid general GDL Object file."
Perhaps it's related to this problem that my RFA & RVT GEOMETRY EXCHANGE ADD-ON is not working. It says "unknown file version. RFA file versions 2015-2020 are supported." And those are the same rfa files that I used in AC22, so the files are just fine.

I'm using AC 23 in Windows 10
Thank you!

Just clarifying; these objects you are trying to insert are converted Revit objects?

Nope, just native AC23 objects like Wall Niche among others. I mentioned the problem with imported Revit objects because I think it is related. I added a print for better clarification.

Wall Niche such are available under Windows => Building Structures.

You are right, thank you! I guess this division in wall extras between objects and windows is a little weird since even a pilar recess is in the window tool but not in the object tool

I am not sure how the arch objects work, but all of the objects under to Window Tool cut or extrude the wall they are place on. The others create new entities.
