Is there a way to adjust the standard archicad triple sliding window (W Sliding3) to show as X-O-O instead of the standard X-O-X? I'd prefer NOT to have to mask the extra slider symbol on the one side of the window on the elevations/sections/schedule etc, plus I like to have the openings show correctly in 3D.
Yes, the top image is what I need! Can you share the window settings you used?
Artktecture and Christophe,

I believe the issue is that artktecture is in Canada, and likely using the USA library. W Sliding3 in the USA library does not have the option to choose the number of sliding sashes.

The International library (which you are using Christophe) is much more flexible.

I have found a similar situation with sliding doors. The International library has many configurations but the USA library in some cases doesn't have a suitable object. I ended up getting someone to "convert" a few sliding doors from the International library to work with the macros in the USA library.

Artktecture, I'd recommend downloading the International version of ARCHICAD and looking at the objects there.
Thanks Eli,

I am using the W Sliding3 object from the USA library and will look into the international version.
