Graphic Override to change the color of the window marker text based on the sill height of window???

Is it possible to create a graphic override that changes the color of the window marker text based on the sill height of the window?

 

I want windows with a sill height < 3'-0" and a custom property of "Window Venting=True" to change the text color of the window marker from black to red. This is what the override is so far, and while it changes the window lines to red, it doesn't seem to affect the associated markers. Having the lines of the window change to red is ok, but quite often we model windows stacked one on top of another, so this doesn't always work. (We often have unique and complex combinations of windows and have not found a window object that meets our needs, so we find it easier to model each unit separately.)

Here is an example of a simple window scenario with a 5'-0"x6'-0" fixed window modeled over top of a 5'-0"x2'-0" awning window. I'd like the awning marker to be red.

Thanks in advance,

 

edit: One other question, how does archicad determine the plan view display order of windows modeled on top of each other? They don't seem to respond to the display order command, and sometimes the uncut window will show above the cut window.

download a copy of the INT version of Archicad, and load this library into a test project. 

 

have a look at the multi-sash windows. They might do the trick for you and you can select which sash is represented in the plan.

 

if that solves one problem you're having, it might be easier to try and fix the labeling issues.

Thanks Aaron,

 

I've added the INT window and door libraries to our template already, but the multi-sash window just isn't flexible enough for some of what we do. It's close, but not quite...
