WHERE THE HECK ARE THE WINDOW/DOOR HEADER DEFAULTS?

I've used the search tool and searched the forums and can't figure this one out.

Up until now I've used a custom window/door macro that called out headers...decided to switch to the framing labels and, welp, take a look:

the window shows "4x12" as I like, the doors show "11-1/8 "even though the spec'd deflt is 11-1/4. my door default for that door is set to auto calc based on width, same as the window, yet I have two very different labels even though both use defaults....AND WHERE THE HECK ARE THE DEFAULTS??!! I can't find header label defaults anywhere, somehow they are different labels even though they are identical framing members

Framing > Openings.    Looks like quite a mess Rene.  Hope you can get it straightened out.

 

Is it possible the Wall Detail got tweaked ?

thank you for that, still can't figure out why the member size is the same but the window header reports a 4x12!

Can't seem to duplicate with my test plan.  Are you sure the door and two lower window header labels are actually automatic ?

 

The 4 x 12 is the nominal size and that seems to be the way the Automatic Label is set up just the way it was a few versions ago when we asked for more control.

 

You must have %Formatted Depth% in there for the door somewhere.

 

Post a sample plan file and I will have a look.

Might have to do with the top RO forcing the the header up and reducing the actual dimension? These are both set at 11 1/4 in the door DBX
