Unable to save a custom curtain wall panel

I'm trying to create a custom curtain wall panel but, however, I do not see that option available under the "Save Selection As" menu. I'm working in Archicad 25 Solo. Does anyone know if that option  is only available is some versions of Archicad? Or does anyone know how to make that option available in 25 Solo?

The command you need is No CC Subtypes.

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.

Thank you both for your feedback and advice.

 

What I discovered was this issue only occurred when I opened an archive file and read the objects directly from it. When I opted to extract the objects to a folder on the hard drive, the issue went away.

 

Thanks for the signature tip David.

There is a macro folder in the library that contains macros for the 'CC" (Custom Component) types.

I guess they weren't all included in the archive library.

Thanks for adding your signature. I think Barry is right, the standard ArchiCAD library needs to be loaded for these commands to work.
