In the Sketch Window dialog box, specify the remaining parameters for the desired window.

Under Save as, select the ARCHICAD object type (Object, Window or Door) and the folder location and choose a name for the new window.
Note: The choice you make here affects the behavior of the structure. Window and Door type elements can only be placed into walls and will create an opening there. Object type elements can be placed independently, they do not create an opening in a wall, will be listed as objects (and not as windows or doors) in calculations and can only be opened with the Object tool.
