First look at a gable wall with a combination of rectangular, trapezoid and pentagon windows:









This type of gable wall would probably be used with a scissor truss set where the bottom pitch of the truss set aligns with the pitch/slope of the windows.

First look at "Pentagon" windows:



Note that if one sets the window height to zero you can also achieve an isosceles or equilateral triangle window (the degenerate cases).

Since I'm fresh on windows right now I thought that it might be the opportune time to add in the pentagon picture window as well, one less monkey on my back.  The only other significant window missing is probably the quarter circle.

Here is an interesting framing situation.  You have two internal walls that tee into a wall which has a pocket door that bisects the tee:



Overall no major problems the three walls can be configured correctly with "tee" intersections and the offset can be set to 1.75" for the two tee walls so that they meet properly at the top plate.

The only issue is the that the gypsum backer studs are drawn full length and should be truncated at the header (hence the clash).  The offending gypsum backer is colored red in the screenshot.

The manual work around is to use the Trim Tool (Medeek Truss) and quickly trim the gypsum backers.  I will have to examine this situation further and see if some additional logic can remedy this clash.  This is not a huge deal breaker/ hot item in my opinion but it is a special framing case that needs a second look.

The other obvious (simple) solution is to turn off the tee intersection backers in the global settings but this is really not a good option since it will disable the gypsum backers for all the walls in the model, not just this one.
