Sunday I'm doing a couple rooms with these trapizoid windows with half-round tops, and of course I'm using a ladder. Any tricks to making the trimming easier on these?

cut the arch about 1/2 over before you haul them up the ladder.

Cut them as a rectangle fitst, then fold them in half. cut a half circle of the top. Unfold them and re-roll.

Are you doing any other windows in the house? If so....use a piece of clear liner from one of those other windows to make a quick pattern of the half arch. You can lay it on the film and use it to make a 'rough cut,' slightly oversizing it, to make it easier to handle the piece of film once you're up on the ladder.
