I suppose this isn’t technically a GDL question, but hopefully this is the best place anyway. I am trying to save an irregularly shaped window via Save as Window. As we know, the method for this is to make a slab the shape of the opening and give it the ID “WALLHOLE”. Then in the finished window’s script, there is a WALLHOLE statement with that geometry. This has suddenly stopped working; the WALLHOLE slab is created as a normal CPRISM_, and the WALLHOLE statement is missing. This results in a rectangular hole around the irregular shape.

I just tried this in AC22 and AC23 and it works as expected. I selected the slabs in the 3D Window and used the Window… command to save the slabs as a window library part.

Yes, it seems to be inconsistent. I haven’t discovered a pattern yet. I suspect the library part maker add-on, but I don’t have proof.

Could it be an accidental space before the WALLHOLE ID?
It will show up as a GROUP in the script like this…
!! WALLHOLE 11C568E9-A66C-4F8B-A726-256092BDAB31 group "group_CBE05540_454F_457B_8D5A_AF754CE73274" placegroup (result_D3A02F46_3F08_4F13_95C0_304B00794714) endgroup

That was it. Thanks Barry. Since then I’ve had failures due to multiple spaces after the WALLHOLE. Not sure where the file got the idea it should have a bunch of spaces in a seemingly blank ID.
