No trim type given.  ...

 

There are so many possibilities but since you asked a simple question - for a simple picture frame trim (that has a profile) with mitered corners

  • a sweep in the door family
  • a face based family with a seep
  • a sweep in the project using the wall face as the work plane

If you want something else then you need to reframe your question.

Let me reframe the question. What is the best way to create trim around ganged windows or ganged doors? If I use one type of windows close to each other and the family has its own surrounding sweep, the "in between" trim will have lines showing where the construction will be one piece. What is the best way to create this in Revit. 

See image for what I am looking for. As you can see there are twin and quadruple units together. This is what I am looking for. Note that the apron below the windows is a different profile 

Thank you

That is a much better question.

If trim is to be included in the family, then ganged windows need to be ganged in the family.  That is typically the preferred process.  Then to get trim as you show, the trim should be separate extrusions on the wall face - no sweeps required.  If the trim pieces are tot rectangular, then they need to be separate sweeps but they could also be extrusions. 

 

The garage door trim looks like it should be one sweep.

Wall sweeps is the worst and hardest way to go. 

 

Good Luck

I was thinking that I could actually align the profiles to the wall openings rather than creating a family with multiple windows. Alternatively I looked at the family that comes with revit called the combination Rtp with Trim but I don't understand how the vertical middle mullion is set/constrained and how to modify its width to fit my needs. Also, are the windows used family items themselves?

"...I was thinking that I could actually align the profiles to the wall openings..."  << You mean with in-place sweeps - not wall sweeps?  Yes, you can do that in the project or in the family.

 

For a multiple family window, you should probably stay away from parametrics if you are not yet proficient at building families.  Just edit a single type, increasing the wall cut to accomodate two and copying the window componets all togetehr to the scond location.  Then add the trim and center mullion.
