Is there any way to create a small gap or offset between the door and casing? Like a real door would have, to leave just a tiny bit of room for the hinges. Specifically for open interior doors. I've made a door hinge symbol I'd like to use, and I assume I'd have to make a different one for various swing angles, but I'm not seeing any obvious way to create that small gap. By default, Chief's doors just meet the casing at the corner completely, leaving no room. I could force the hinges in there, but they would clip through the door and casing and look less realistic.
I'd also like to add a strike plate to the casing and latch to the door, but short of placing the symbols myself that doesn't seem very plausible right now. Maybe a suggestion for a future version of Chief.
I have downloaded the three garage door catalogs from the Library, and non of them have a standard wide paneled garage door. They also do not have a wide paneled 8' high door (5 panels high)
What they have is 5 panel high flush doors - so this can be stretched - cool
But there are no standard paneled, wide (16' and 18') 4 or 5 high garage doors.
Does someone have access to such doors?
The long panel door comes in both 4 panel wide and 2 panel wide - very good.
The door with the 4 panels across come should also come with 8 panels for wider doors.
Am I missing it somewhere? It's like the most common door used from Menards and Lowes. Starter doors.
Here's the door I need to specify, an Andersen A-Series with three panels:
Here are the options that chief gives me for a hinged patio door:
Should I just write a note on the drawing that says 'my software can't make a door like that...' I'm embarrassed to admit this to Kevin, a fellow local designer who is thinking of moving to CA or a similar program, because I always talk up how great Chief is but then there's stuff like this.
What do experienced Cheefers do?
