I am using version 14 and placing smart walls and doors and for the most time they work great. Some times when placing multiple windows of the same type on a common wall, seems like some of the openings for the windows are cut and some are not. I can place a window or a door on a wall and then it looks fine in the o2c viewer and then I will keep working and go back and try to place a or or window it doesnt cut out all the openings. Ialso have noticed that if I export the file out to sketch up and view it sometimes I get the same result and sometimes it cuts out the opening but the glass seems to be solid and not transparent. I am using sketch up for the viewer because it seems to be a lot better for viewing the 3d models. If anyone has any thoughts let me know. If you need a screen shot let me know.

p.s. dont know if this is a version 14 flaw or if the later version fixes some of these bugs. I am just starting to get into the 3d modeling and materials.
