It's been a while since I used this tool and it looks like interest in it has dropped off judging by the activity here. What other methods have people been using? I have been working with solid groups more and components, but sometime I just want to use something like this. There are some drawbacks to the tool at present:

I cannot make a shortcut key command operate the tool. Nothing happens. So it is slow if you are doing a lot of doors, pulling down the menus each time. Also I have found if you preselect the embrasures, you can work them all one by one by selecting the tool over and over. I wonder if the tool could be set to work on multiple instances in one command.

The tool would also be enhanced by having an active phase, with a toolbar. Then just clicking on an embrasure would perform the preset lintel. That would be the quickest use.

I sometimes get an error message that the maximum door height is exceeded. It has no relationship to the drawing that I can see. Then I cannot use the tool until I reduce the door height then set it back up again where I want it. I thought I might look at adjusting the script, but it's encoded.

Windows are set by sill and window size. It seems to me that convention would make it appropriate to set window head height and window size instead. Then adjusting for a different window would usually take only one input as window heads are usually constant in a building.

This tool works well and cleanly. It's helpful if you have imported CAD wall lines that already have openings. Probably has other uses in joining shapes. Thanks, Peter

Just discovered this plugin this morning ... very handy when importing a plan drawing in CAD as you suggested. I agree with your comments about some minor tweaking.

I recently discovered TIG's Hole Punching tool...
viewtopic.php?t=30846
which could work as a more efficient alternative depending on your components and objectives.

Thanks for the note. I haven't been using that method, though I have looked at the plugin a few times. I'll look into it.

following the download button doesn't take me to the correct page, also, if I search the pluginstore, either by author or by plugin name it does not show this plugin

is it an error there or on my machine somehow?

Dear Didier Bur,

This so magical very easy to use and give incredible result. because it saves lot of time which is consumed by conventional method(which is very cumbersome) of putting doors And windows. your this plug-in has put an end on that ordeal of deleting every single vertical and horizontal line on faces of walls, which very irritating thank you very much and keep it up!

This plugin is wonderful!
Does it work within a component? It seems to work for me only when it's in the "open!?"
