show windows as symbolic when above or below cut plane

I have windows in a wall at different heights and so the cut plane can only "cut" one window or the other, but not both. how can i have them both showing in the same view? i read a post from 2006 that says the symbolic floor plan display shows the window as cut regardless of the cut plane setting, but that must have been changed since then.

You need to set your wall as symbolic as well.
