Trim not allowed under sill in mitred corner windows?

Recommended Posts

I've just tried to use the new corner window option in VW2010 but it doesn't seen to allow for the application of trim under the stool of a mitred window.

Am I missing something?

Why wouldn't NNA think I'd like to have trim under a corner window?

Oh, I know where to check to get trim under the sill. Problem is, checking that option doesn't actually result in getting the trim. If you look at the OIP, you'll see that the check boxes for the trim under sill options are grayed out.

NatureBoy, does checking the option work for you, on a mitered corner window?

Because in VW you can model it manually. Doesn't justify it but I think this is generally the underlying reason for such bugs/omissions.

P.S. I get same behaviour as you.

Bill,

Granted i am not an Architect so my use of the window tool is limited, but my options in the PIO are available. funny thing is my window tool seems to work but lots of issues with landmark, yours probably works fine.

Christian, thanks for your response. Very helpful.

NatureBoy, my option for under window trim is NOT working. Strange that yours is. I started a new, blank drawing with the same results - no trim. See attached image.

I've had to hold off a day on a reply, but Vectorworks 2011 allows your trim under sill and trim under stool for corner windows.

Upgrade for a bug-fix. How very...Microsoft.

Bill Ill try it again and render it I may be wrong (windows not my expertise so thanks for bearing with me at least I'm learning this portion of the software I normally do not deal with.) was that enough of a run.

Sorry for my misunderstanding of this issue, when I render the corner window options by just placing a window in space all is fine, when I place two corner windows in how you have it in your .png same as you show. I learned a little more here and also found there is a problem with the corner window tool.

Judah,

I'm guessing you already have 2011, I would like to ask you some questions on new capabilities to see about my own upgrades. I'll talk to you though in another topic more appropriate.
