Select the window by left-clicking it to access additional drawing options in the menu bar on the right side of the window.

Position

With the X value, you can change the horizontal position of the window in relation to where it is on the wall.

The Base height value controls at which height from the floor the window starts.

Dimensions

With the Height value, you can control how high the window is, while the Length value lets you control the vertical length of if.

Configuration

The Frame length value allows you to adjust how far the window frame extends towards its own center. The Frame width value controls how wide the window frame is in the direction of the wall thickness. The Frame position controls whether the window frame is on the back of the wall, in the center, or at the front.

Finally, the Number of panes gives you a preview of how the window looks like. It shows you how wide and how high it is and far it extends from the floor.

Here you can also use the Add divider button to add divisions to your window or use the Remove divider button to remove the divisions again.

Materials

You can adjust the color of the window frame. To do so simply left-click the text box and paste a hexadecimal color value or left-click Custom to open a color picker tool and choose the color that you like.

Select Host Wall

Finally, you will also find a button at the bottom of the menu that allows you to select the host wall of the window. This can be useful if the window stretches along the full length of the wall
