I've use the Opening schedule feature extensively to calculate glazed area's, as the glazed area is an important feature of the insulation requirements under the Ontario Building Code ...

 

and I've never given a thought to actually checking the area's ...

Maybe I should. I'm not sure why, but it appears that my round top has actually got more glazing than the total area of the window. maybe someone should check the math on that one!

I'm going to revisit this one ...

 

It seems that special shape windows are reporting ODD area's

Not sure why this window is ALSO reporting substantially more glazing area than the area of the window. Will submit a support ticket to substantiate this.

I can't get sliding doors to show glazing area. Is this not an option?

The glazed area calculation issue for non-square openings has been reported.
