Great tools,
I am able to create the windows properly but when I try to make them transparent the whole window, mullions and all turn transparent, how do I make just the glass areas clear?

hi TBone,
The different elements in the windows and doors are grouped in different levels.
if you pick the window, first level selects the entire window;

selection level 1 (entire window)

double click into the next level (the window panel and glass)

level 2 - window panel selected

double click again into the next level (all the glass as a group)
win-lvl3.jpg
level 3 - select all the glass as a group

you can double click again into each face of the glass
win-lvl4.jpg
level 4 - the face that makes up the glass

Clicking into different level inside the group allows you to paint them together or separately.
The simplest way to do is:

Step 1: paint everything.
win-paintall.jpg
paint everything first

Step 2: double click until you reach the glass group and paint the glass

paint the glass group

Still having a problem, I'm getting nice windows with translucent looking glass from the outside of my house drawing, but on the inside view all I get is a window frame, the window sash isn't showing on the inside, the window isn't (cutting out) the rear face!

hi TBone,
Current version do not cut wall and insert windows at the same time.
You'll have to cut the wall using the wall opening tool first.
Then draw a rectangle to define the profile of the window, then run the window tools.
I'm currently working on a window tool that cut wall and insert windows at the same time.
I'll keep everyone informed when i have something for testing.
Thanks and cheers!
