Auto Wall Opening framing headers not correct - please confirm

Recommended Posts

I just noticed that the automatic header opening framing sizing feature is not working correctly, and does not match the opening specs you set in Default Settings-Framing-Openings.

 

To confirm, I drew a large house with only one interior wall, added door openings of different sizes and types from 3 feet to 12 feet. They all get assigned headers of (2) 2" x 6". HOWEVER, a door opening that is the same size, and changed to a horizontal slider, doors 3 and 4, get headers applied differently as seen in the schedule. 

 

It also appears to affect the window framing/schedule. All windows of different widths get assigned (2) 2x6. I hate to think about all the projects I sent out in the last 2 months that I didn't review the the door/window shedules. Oh crap.

 

Before I submit the bug can someone else verify and duplicate?

Are your framing specs the same for sliding doors as they are for hinged or bifold doors?

It's working just fine for me.  Check your default settings.  Make sure your desired Door Defaults have their framing set to Calculate From Width.

Wasn't you AFAIK, though you may have started a new Template for X12? 

 

Framing set to Calculate From Width ,unchecked is the Default in Chief's Residential Template in X11 + X12 for both Windows and Doors it seems,

just ran into this recently myself.

There appears to be quite a few defaults that have changed or do not migrate. I went from X10 to X12 and have had to go through all my defaults and make adjustments.
