The normal is automatically calculated, but the value needs to be set to [0,0,0],
I tested what Yorik says in this post :

If the sketch is moved, and provided the Normal property of the window is (0,0,0), this calculation is done again automatically
So I have prepared a technique for graphically placing windows or doors, both on an oblique wall and on a roof, without the need to calculate normals. I will write an explanation next week.

I added this page to the video tutorials, in the architecture section. I will also add it to the written tutorials.
