Two wishes for Archicad windows

Jeff Thompson

Currently I'm working in Archicad 26.  I have a wish for windows in Archicad.  Right now, we aren't allowed to choose what pane of a window, we want to have operate, and then choose what direction it operates.  Sure, Archicad has some choices available, but it would be nice if we could dictate what panes we want to operate and how.  Right now, we are turning off the 3D projections opening lines and then we go into our elevations and draw the opening lines on the windows.  It would be amazing to do that in the window selection settings instead.


Vinyl windows have a nailer strip around them and window frames in Archicad don't show these strips.  I think this would be helpful to locate the frame according to that nailer strip.
