Dear waltergarcia,

It is not possible to assign windows and doors to a masonry element.
According to SeismoStruct User Manual: Two nodes need to be defined for these element types, representing the end-nodes of the element, thus defining its length, position in space and direction (local axis 1). A rotation angle or a third node is required so as to define the orientation of the element's cross section (local axes 2 and 3), as described in Global and local axes system.
Hence, if you have the proper nodes and make the proper connections with the other elements, you may insert a masonry wall in the middle of the slab.
