Pick on the curtain system and you will see a small blue icon or under its properties, there is an offset parameter in both directions, just measure the distance needed and modify this setting.

you know ive tried that already and it worked, although not as i thought. i wanted continuous grid lines through all segments. i thought revit would create a curtain system over all the segments using a single grid and not a grid for each segment, that way the grid lines and after that the mullions would be continuous lines from left to right and bottom to top. i guess i'll just have to live with that or draw the grid line myself.

but the bigger problem is that the windows are placed verticaly on 2 segments and horizontaly on the other 4 segments. to this problem i couldnt find a solution. how to rotate the placing of windows in a curtain system 90 degrees?

I don't have an answer but I was wondering if I could ask you a question.  How did you get your mullions and glass to curve along your curtain grid.  When I create a curtain grid from mass face my curtain panels and mullions are always straight (like the grid on the left in your image).
