Hi RJR, try this..

 

Corners like to be mitred. Reduce the high wall to meet its neighbour and, when the walls join, the window will give up the fight and fall into line with your expectations.

 

Then draw an additional wall above for the parapet. I've left this highlighted in the screen shots so you can see its a separate high level wall.

Hope this helps you.

@RJRHi, I am able to create corner windows with 2 different height walls as a start with walls different height and with same height and extend one. see attached. HTH

Yes Alan, but that doesn't provide the stop end detail required to the upper wall which I assumed RJR was after.

I've done it this way before and edited the wall end detail so it looks just like the desired stop end detail. If you add a couple of vertices to the end of the higher wall you can "notch out" the mitred end.

 

this technique also works when there is no corner window and you want the walls to look mitred on top plan view.
