Exterior Crown Molding over Window Trim

Recommended Posts

 Trying to add this piece of crown to the top of the windows.  I come across this quite a bit in historic Atlanta and usually end up drawing a piece of molding using a polyline and adjust for each window.  I just tried creating a symbol into millwork using a piece of crown.  This seemed to work well, but does not wrap on each side.

A lintel replaces the top piece of casing.

Great, perfect, although it still does not give me a clue how to make it work or do it.  When I use a lintel it gets rid of the top casing.

Use a profile that combines the casing and crown.

That is what I was afraid of.  Unfortunately, when I mull 2 windows I get a bunch of extra vertical lines where the lintels overlap.  I think I need to stick to the molding polyline.

I'm not seeing that.

 

You can also apply a lintel to the mulled unit instead of the individuals.

But you now have extra horizontal lines between vertical and top casing.  I know I cannot have everything I want. Mulling a window in Chief changes its appearance graphically.  I do appreciate your help though. Thanks.

In that case, you should submit a "Feature Request" to have Lintels optionally be above (and in addition to) the casing.

Who knows, CA might implement that request  -  but not if they haven't been asked.
