What happened to normal window names in ArchiCAD 26?

The names used to be more descriptive, like Horizontal Multi-Sash Window, etc...?

The libraries are specific to each localization (country/language release).  The names you show are the ones I've always seen in the US.

I recently re-installed the program! That surely changed the names, thank you!

Should I re-install another version to recover the names?

I've never seen names such as "Horizontal Multi-Sash Window" in 23 years of using Archicad.  But, I'm using the USA localization and library.  What localization have you historically been using, and have you installed something different?

 

Please add a signature to your profile (which will appear with every post as you see with mine) - or provide the information in any post like this with questions - listing your operating system, localization, and the version of Archicad your question is about.
