  1. We use many different types of windows and doors and try to design AND draw accurately so that our "design intent" is clear and simply stated. Is there a way to create window "styles" that create windows that are more reflective of modern aluminum or vinyl windows and glazing systems? VW's window styles always look like wood windows. That's fine for old buildings that use wood windows or for residential applications where wood-based windows (Pella, Marvin, etc) are the norm in our area. But when it comes to schools and other commercial buildings created from extruded aluminum or vinyl are at least as commonly used. Even the Anderson windows that come in the standard VW Library really don't display the window components in plan view accurately (window sash size and location relative to the window frame. 1. Is there a white paper or tutorial that explains the various different style parameters and how they interact with each other? 2. I see that creating symbols is often recommended for customizing components. Can such symbols be linked to window styles so that they substitute for the off-the-shelf component profiles when a window is inserted? Thank you
