More Flexible Window Units?

architect
Booster

I have 3 windows, mulled together within a 10' rough opening.
For example sake, is there a way to have, say a ribbon window that includes casement, fixed, awning, slider, in whichever order I would prefer? 
So, a ribbon window with the ability to change particular units to operable?
This is a bit less fussy than individual units and ensures that the 3 mulled units never exceed the 10' R.O. that the CMU will allow for. I know this can be accomplished by a note too.

W Casement 04 is less functional than I'd hoped for, but I am unsure if there are more flexible window types I am missing.

For this issue you should get "Modular Window" object. You can find more information on this topic:

Hadn't heard of this window style! So, if I want the Horizontal Multi-Sash Window, I need to install/open the Archicad 27 International version, then place that window a wall, and copy that wall/window into my US Version? 

Yes but the may also be a bunch of macros you will need as well as the window object itself.

 

You could extract the LCF and find all of the macros.

Or place a window and save a PLA (archive) file and you should find the window and macros in the embedded library when you open that PLA.

Just do a search in AC, there is probably a copy on BIMComponents.

 

install/open the Archicad 27 International version, then place that window a wall, and copy that wall/window into my US Version? 

This would not work as copying an object does not move it's library instance which would result in it being missing in your US file. You could possibly place the window and archive the basically empty project in order to isolate the object and required macros, but there might still be some conflicts when you load it into a US file if the macros are named the same.
