Is there a way to place a window (and doors) within a wall centered at the core (stud) instead of the whole wall. Im placing these windows in brick walls and I dont want them to have these extra long sills. I want it be be more realistic where they are base on the stud wall not the finish. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You can edit the family (or create a new one). Copy and paste the wall style from the project (or create it in the family editor). Then adjust the windows settings to react the way you need. To copy the wall style from the project you need to copy it from the project browser (tree) and not the model.

Thats a good idea if theres not a bazillion different window types and wall types. I was hoping there was a way to set the window to be based on the core of the wall somehow... Im doing a whole subdivion with 45 different elevations so there a whole lotta windows and wall types

Once you have the window family set up to react to the core the way you want, it will react that way for all wall style cores.

You need to learn family creation & editing which is paramount to using Revit. Family and in place model creation is the doorway to overcoming design limitations. Take the time to go through some tutorials.

Briefly; When components are created they are related to a working plane. If you want your windows centered on the wall core you need to create a reference plane that is locked to the center of the wall core (if there's not one there already). Then your components need to primarily use that reference plane as the working plane, you adjust the components parameters accordingly. Then the window will always be placed as related to the center of the wall core no matter the core thickness.

Also one very important aspect to family creation and editing is to stretch the components (resize with family parameters) to make sure all the componentrs react as intended. In your case change the wall core thickness in the wall properties also.
