Hello, I have created this mass which has a slanted side, and I want to make this side a curtain wall, I go to massing and site and chose this side for a curtain system and that went fine. But I can't figure out how to make this opening in the middle of it. How can I do that? I thought I could edit profile like with a normal wall, but no... I got edif face selection instead when i select this wall... Please help...

with curtain grids, break it up into panels, and delete the panel you wish.  Alternatively, you could model-in-place a void in the wall category, and cut geometry with the curtain wall.

I have tried both of the methods so many times already, but I think I'm missing something... I'm trying the void option again, so, the process I went through is create curtain wall - go to massing and site to create in place mass - creatstick ine a void form and stick in through my curtain wall, then click the big green tick, and then I get...''This Mass has no solid geometry for its Void Forms to cut. They must be deleted, or solid geometry added and cut.'' hmm....what went wrong?

Err... I'm sorry.  I said delete, but you can't delete a panel, you have to replace the panel with an "empty" panel.

 

brain fart.  pic related.

Ohhh!! Thanks so much! So simple, yet so hard!! Haha... 

In fact I want to turn this opening into a door, or maybe insert a door into this curtain wall, is that possible?

You can insert Curtain wall doors in curtain walls BUT because your CW is slanted you can't, you need to create one "in-place" family.
