Thank you for the great video! When I get to the point of applying my saved block "window & door topper" to the window it does not appear in my user catalog. Any advice?

1 - draw your molding

2 - Select all the moldings

3- Add to Library.  It should appear in your catalog as "molding".  Rename it if you want.
          (Use the Add to Library or...the Stacked Molding menu button. Either will work)

4 - Open the Window dialog.  Go to lintel tab.  Choose the lintel you just made.  Select extend and wrap as needed.

 

That's really all there is to it.

That is another problem I have been having. When I select the molding, the "add to library" feature doesn't always appear.

@Joe_Carrick

I believe I have... When I open the object it automatically has it saved in the molding layer. Is that proper? But when I was able to create the block it didn't ask about anything regarding moldings that I can recall.

You don't make an Architectural Block.

 

Just do what Steve said above.

The image shown above directed toward Steve was not a block, just the "union poly-line" as instructed. At one point I attempted making a block as that was the only option shown to me in the tool bars - obviously still had no luck.

Post the plan with the molding placed in it and I'll have a look.

I redrew the assembly with a different crown molding piece and this time around it worked...? Not sure if it's the molding piece or just me. Probably was me. ;) 

 

Thank you everyone for taking the time to assist me and for providing the great Lintel trick!

      crown moulding not showing up on the inside of an exterior wall? I have created a new exterior wall (Dbl masonry w/fir strips), I have three layers (Int, Main, ext.), the walls line up with upper and lower walls, but, the crown does not show up on these walls?

      Hello All, 
       
      I am working on a plan for an addition and in the basement there is a garage with an overhead door and man door. The doors show up on the 3D overviews and elevations, but not the foundation plan. I have checked the layers and they are all on. The odd thing is that I have layer called Doors, Existing and they are showning fine everywhere. Note the new doors do show up on an older version of the plan (backup copy). 
       
      Any suggestions would be appreciated. 
       
      Thank you in advance, 
       
      Chris
