Greetings Friends-

When I edit a side lite and change the Grille 'horizontal' from 5 to 4 (or any number) in Model mode, it does not change and remains the same. The Elevation view will change and update accordingly which is great, but I produce a 3-D rendering model in illustrated mode for this customer and this particular item is one they wanted to see.


Also, it will not let me change the Grille pattern at all for an 'Entry ' door that already has side lite in the system library.


Am I missing something here?

The 3D model normally uses ACTUAL OPENINGS in the Extraction mode, try changing the extraction mode to ENHANCED OPENINGS.

Thanks Keith, that did it!


On an arc window, Is there a way to get shutters to fit to the top edge where the arc begins, NOT to the top of the arc?

Thanks Keith.  I had same problems on a modified garage door. You would think ACTUAL OPENINGS would be better than ENHANCED OPENINGS, but got it to work so that is the important part
