How to delete casing in sidelight windows?

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with sidelight windows in very thick walls. I think it is obvious from the screenshot. Windows (and doors) have this think "wall" between themselves and central door. When I mull the objects these walls stay. 
Is there a way to remove them?I deleted casing but it wouldn't help.

Try 2 walls -- one thin for the door and sidelights.

I hate to be captain obvious, but its probably because there is no such thing as a single framed wall that thick.   Eric's idea is probably a practical solution, but you also might just try modeling the condition out the actual way it would be built - the software works much using it that way.

It's not about thickness, I checked on different walls. Even when I mull windows and doors together these thin dividers remain. I thought it was a part of the wall but it remains when I mull them...

There is no plan,

 

You created a plan showing the problem -- the white doors with the wood sidelights.

The plan file -- not a picture of the plan.

To be  honest, making a wall thinner is the best decision. 
Maybe CA is not a programme for very thick concrete or adobe walls. Unfortunately, there are places in the world where people build a foot-thick or even two-feet thick stone exterior walls.
