Interactive Window Insertion & Editing

More interactive window insertion and editing functionalities provide you with more control over the design and placement of windows. You now have access to two new modes:

1. Golden Triangle mode allows you to interactively edit window size with automatic adherence to the golden ratio.

2. Creation from Center mode makes it so you can create windows from a center point.

In addition, you can now place windows to and from the corner of adjoining walls. This advancement will automatically turn a window extending to a wall corner into a corner window.
