I have tried different combinations and I know I have done this in the past, just cannot find that project.

What is missing is your plan file so we can examine your window specs.

P.S. If the wall is solid masonry, you will need to eliminate the rough opening settings. The gap you see is probably the rough openings, but there isn't framing in a solid masonry wall.
