Changing default window sill
SoftPlan Version:

I have searched System Options in an attempt to change what seems to be the default window sill from cast to brick.  Can this be done?  Thanks.

Window sills

I have sliders for the basement that if I check the window sill, a brick sill is default but I don't know if that's because it was originally programmed with the brick sills. For those windows in my System Library, the sill is unchecked so hard to verify. I don't know if by default Softplan takes the 1rst sill in the list but I don't know where you can change the order of that list as we can for some other items in the System Options?

Sills are defined as part of the opening itself. You can change it individually on each opening using the System Library.

What would be nice is if we could define default sills and exterior trim per wall material type. So an opening in a brick wall would automatically have brick trim and sill and the same opening in a siding wall would automatically have wood trim around it. As it is now you can set a default for each opening but if you are inserting the same opening in different wall materials you have to edit the trim and sills as appropriate.

Gentlemen thank you for the replies.  I had a suspicion that it wouldn't be an easy thing to do.
