Quick Window PIO Question

Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to create a grouping of multiple windows using the window PIO controls? I usually make multiple windows and place them next to each other, but it would be really nice to be able to move them as one object in a wall, and not have to go through the time of making a custom symbol.

Eric, Have you tried setting the SASH OPERATION to CUSTOM and then clicking on CUSTOM SASH OPTIONS (in the SETTINGS dialog)? This will enable you to make multiple "columns" (or rows) in your window. It will move, etc. as one unit. The only (minor) drawback is that you cannot adjust the mullion width, so what you get is closer to how a window mfr would mull windows together (with no space between them) as opposed to the more traditional ganged and spaced individual units you may want. Worth a try?

Peter, you can adjust the mullion width via the "parts" section (part: sash and mullion: mullion width)... I did this for representing some windows I'm using that have a 2" space mull.

Hey thanks Peter. You answered another question on how to set more that 2 horizontal lites via the Custom Sash Options. Used to be a box on the OIP.
