The sun instrument, as used in Archicad 22. I inserted the sun into the drawing (see attached image), but I don't see any changes, I want to let more sun into the window that illuminates inside the room? Thank you

I assume you are talking about the functionality of Sun Object 24 .
It can be adjusted in the 2D and 3D view when you check the box for it.

Place the target end the object first, then when the box is checked the node at the sun end of the object can be moved around to where you want it. Perhaps you just have it in a place where the light is not coming in through the window ? The object is also adjustable in Section views too. If you are sure the object is in the right place and there is still no effect, then it must be the settings. ?
