Only able to assign a single window in FloorspaceJS

I've been attempting to make a model with FloorspaceJS, and all of the components work fine until I try to assign windows to the areas. What happens is after I select the window tool, I click once to assign it to a zone edge (which works) but when I try to assign the same window to another edge I am unable to. The green indicators do not appear. At that point, the model glitches so that whenever I scroll on the screen, the model follows. After deleting the window object, it returns to normal.

I have tried to remedy this by changing the window type (repeating, single, WWR) but it doesn't make a difference. Additionally, I am able to add more than one window if I change floors, but no more than one edge can be selected per floor before the model glitches again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Did you look at my answer above? Decide if you want single window or window to wall ratio

I did and it was not working. What worked was to merge once the wall are done and then put the windows. The bug disappeared.

Make sure your component mode is set to “single window” instead of “window to wall ratio” That way each window component you add represents an individual window and not a single window band representing a target WWR. Then you should be able to add multiple windows to a facade. You can view the documentation here.
