Adjusting mounting height of Sunshade Accessory

v22 project, curtainwall object, using the Sun Shade 22 curtainwall accessory. I have adjusted the dimensions and number of fins easily, but I cannot seem to figure out how to adjust the vertical mounting height above finish floor. I haven't found a z-axis in the dialogue and the pink nodes in 3d says it is 'editable' but I can't seem bring up the pet palette. What am I missing?

As far as I know, the Sun Shade Accessory can only be placed along Curtain Wall Grid Lines. When you place the Curtain Wall, you can have a Grid, But you can of course place new Grid Segments anywhere, and then place the Sun Shade along those Grid Segments. This way you can place Sun Shades at any height.
