Trapezoid windows in upper portion of ballon framed wall

Recommended Posts

When I place trapezoid windows in the upper portion of a balloon framed gable wall which has windows and doors in the lower portion of the wall, they show on the wall floor plan and block out portions of the wall.  I have tried placing the windows on a separate layer and not displaying that level on the floor plan, but that does not solve the problem.  I have tried using the window vertical stacking option, but again no help.  I tried to attach the plan file, but get a note telling me the file is too big, even after zipping it.

 

Any help you all could provide would be much appreciated.

All someone needs is a one room plan that demonstrates the problem.

 

You can use Edit Area to copy from your too big plan into a new one and attach it.

 

A screen capture of the plan showing the problem might also be helpful.

 

And, please check your messages.

You can set those windows to use an Absolute elevation reference and place them in another wall on another level or in the attic or even the basement. 

 

The attic is usually the best option and then change your wall type to a room divider.
