In 2010, I can't get my window family to referance the wall face. I've read previous posts that suggest a referance plane dimensioned off of the host wall face or constrained to it, but I can't get any annotation or modify commands to work from the wall face. I can't dimension to it, I can't align to it. How do I get a Window to recognize the wall face?

When you create a Window family you have already several ref. planes (Center, left, right....) to help in the construction of the family, you can create parameters by dimension those ref. planes, then when you create the "solids" for your window you must constrain/attach those elements (solid) to those ref. planes NOT of the face of the wall.....

Well, I've figured it out. If I use the family template called "Window with Trim" there are interior and exterior wall refernce planes. I've now got window with a parametric "inset from exterior" dimension so that I can place it in relation to the extior wall surface.

 Additionally, this template allows me to to have a precast sill and soldier course lintle that is referenced to the extior wall face and an interior stool and apron refernced to the interior wall face. This is a much handier family template than the plain old "window" template.
