- So we're now in Chapter Four and Chapter Four is all about making this window. I've made a lot of the profiles that will construct the window and so if you are a premium content subscriber you get access to these. Otherwise, there are many window profiles online which you could use, or you could just make something fairly simplistic. But the principle is the same, it doesn't matter how complicated the sections are, the principles of this are exactly the same.
The window that we are making isn't going to be particularly complex. There's no complicated opening mechanism, there's no handles or anything else, it's just going to be an idea of the methodology that you would use, again to create something like this. First up, we need to load the components. As I've said, if you are a premium subscriber, if you go to Chapter Four in the exercise files you'll see a folder called Window Components. If you load that, then you'll be ready to go.
The process for loading it is to click on the Details button and Open or Create Local Collection. This will then take you to your file browser and wherever those exercise file are then just hunt for Chapter Four and Window Components and you'll be ready to go.
