Please add your AC version and OS to your profile.
Which version of AC you are using can make a difference to the answer.

Cadmaster,

Click on the profile button above and add your AC and OS info there so it will always show up. First name would be friendly too

re your questions. There are several storefront library parts, so perhaps you could post a screenshot of which one you are using and what your current Reveal & closure settings are.

1. Model as you would build it applies here. The door and window would be 2 separate assemblies and put together on site. There are ganging options for doors and storefronts.
2. Depends on which storefront....
3. Ditto, but what are you trying to achieve with the sill?
4. IF for example you have chosen Custom Closure you can then set how far back the storefront sits, sim. to any door or window.

You could use the curtain wall tool to create this.
Or contact your reseller and try to get the Modular Joinery object (free if you can get it).
Or buy a special library object - something like Door & Window Builder might do this.
Or just create a one-off object from slabs in plan and save it as a window (note this won't be adjustable).
