Windows/Families Plan Appearance.

Last semester I sat in on a judging panel for a design class.  Out of all of my fellow students presenting only three used Revit.  There was one student, who's project was very nice, answered a question by an Architect on the panel.  The dialogue went as follows:

Architect: "What is that in the bedroom wall?"
Student: "Oh... that is a sliding door."
Architect: "Why is it shown so graphically wrong?"
Student: "It's the program."

This aggravated me.  So here is a quick tutorial on how to make a windows/door look graphically correct in plan.  This is especially helpful if you end up creating a window or grabbing one from a manufacturer.
