How to place the “midpoint” of window on the midpoint of wall?

 

In the screenshot below, I wanted to place the window from its midpoint to the midpoint of the wall. How this can be performed on Revit?

 

Thank you

 

Best

Place the Window, create a dimension between the faces of the outer walls, and click the "EQ" to make the distances equal. (see image)

You can then remove the dimension afterwards if you wish, and either retain or remove the constraints.

Many thanks for the answer. I like your screenshot.

 

I feel that this is very exhaustive. We need to work with dimensions more than working with snaps!
