I have been frustrated by this for a while: is there a way to use the aligned dimensions to tell revit to place vertical curtain panel lines equal distances from the walls (I don't care what distance, as long as its equal) but center a 2m opening?  I know how to use aligned dimensions to make all three lines equidistant...but I only want the outer two equidistant while maintaining the interior dimension.  See picture if that makes no sense.  Thanks.

Lock your center dim.  Then place a dimension from the left to the center of your center panlel then to the right and set that to EQ.  Then middle section will move to the center.  ...delete the EQ dimension string.

Add a string of dimensions that are to the center of the mullions.  The grid.  At the ends, it would be to a line since you have no grid line.  No hit your equal switch.  BTW - Unless you really have different mullions, it is better to dimension to centerline anyway.
