I have placed a bay, bow, or box window using these tools in Chief Architect.  Now, how can I modify the individual component windows contained in the unit?


A component window within a bay, box or bow window can be resized like any other standard window.  The steps below can be done either in the 2D floor plan view, a Cross Section/Elevation view, or in a 3D camera view to modify component windows of an automatic bay, bow, or box window.

To select individual components

  1. To select a component window, using the Select Objects  tool, click at the location of the component in question.

  2. Then, click the Select Next Object   edit button or press the Tab key on your keyboard to select the window itself.

  3. Once you have the individual component window selected, click on the Open Object  edit button to display its Specification dialog, make any desired changes, and click OK to apply them.

    Note: Note: In a bow window, all components are identical, so only one component can be selected. Changing one component changes them all.

  4. If you need to select a different component window, click on it and repeat the procedure until all of the windows have been adjusted as desired.
