The Opening Drawing Mode allows the creation of Windows, Doors & Permanent Openings.
Click the relevant opening type button on the Left Toolbar, or use the keyboard shortcuts,
⌨ W for Windows,
⌨ D for Doors and
⌨ P for Permanent Openings.
You can toggle between creating Windows, Doors & Permanent Openings by using the Change Type button in the guide box or the
⌨ Tilde [`] Change the Sub-Mode keyboard shortcut.
Opening Type can always be changed at a later stage in the Data-Grid
All Openings are created on their parent Walls, so to create an Opening:
🖱 Left-Clickon one of the openings edges
🖱 Left-Clickagain to finish creation.
🖱 Right-Click to reset the original clicked point, and
🖱 Right-Click again or use the
⌨ Escape key to exit the Drawing Mode.
You can manually enter the width of the Opening after the first click, by typing the width in millimetres and hitting the
⌨ Enter key.
Openings are named numerically in order of creation, so a handy tip is to create windows according to the window schedule naming so that you do not need to rename windows or doors at a later stage.
