Beaded/framed drawers & doors: Floating Knobs

Tooling around with more of the tutorial and am running up against another oddity. When a knob is in the "recessed" part of a drawer face or door of a cabinet, the knob "floats" at the distance it would exist if located on the frame of the door/drawer:

Shows in camera views as well as renders as floating, and the shadow falls as one would expect with a floating object:

Is there a setting I am missing? I am getting a little used to allowing CA to do it's thing (most often it "just does" what needs to happen.). Even more odd, it shows in the tutorial text's pictures as floating as well.

 

This is in X11.

Thanks, Alaska. Not quite at the point where I know of creating/modifying symbols though.

Really hoped this was an option somewhere that I had forgotten to checkmark. Again, the software has trained my brain to expect things to just "work". :)

Copy the hardware symbol to your user library, Open Symbol, make the change Michael showed above -- done.

 

Use the new symbol as needed.
