I've created a window frame profile that has parameters for frame thickness. When I loaded this profile into my window family, I couldn't edit the profile's parameters. So I went back to the profile family and created 2 types: a 4.5" profile width and a 6" profile width. I reloaded that into my window family. I created a sweep for the window frame and set its profile to the 4.5" profile. Is there a way make the window frame sweep profile an adjustable parameter?

Just figured it out. First created 2 ref. planes representing the thickness of the frame. Then created a parameter called "Frame Thickness". Dimension the 2 ref. planes. Apply the "Frame Thickness" parameter as a label. Next expand the families in the project browser until you get to the individual profiles. Right click on one of the profiles and go to "type properites". Click the little gray box in the "Frame Thickness" row and set that to the "Frame Thickness" parameter. Do that for each profile. Then when you change the "frame thickness" parameter in the family types box, the window frame sweep will change with it.
