  1. Click the Draw menu > Draw Floor/Wall Objects > Draw Wall Openings command or button to add an opening in a wall.

3. Then, left click anywhere on the wall object where the opening is to be drawn. 

4. If step 2 above is skipped, you can repeat step 3 then move the mouse pointer to locate the top left corner of the opening, using the coordinate display as a guide. Move the mouse pointer and click the lower right corner of the wall opening to draw the opening. A window object can be located anywhere within a wall object.

5. After drawing window or door objects in a wall, use the Edit menu > Edit Shells > Divide Walls for Openings command to appropriately mesh the wall to incorporate the opening.
