Doors not displaying correctly in a railing.

Hi!

I have 90"H walls in a room with very tall vaulted ceilings. For my interior walls, I drew them as railings with solid rail style (so it looks like a wall). My railing height is set to 90," and I deleted the wall cap. The problem is that my door and sidelights look like this - see attached. The door casing and frame go up 90" to the top of the "railing" (wall) instead of 80" which is what I specified the door height to be. My interior doors are specified as 80" tall so there should be 10" of drywall above them. Why is this not displaying correctly?

Thanks for your help!

You could make the wall a "pony wall".  

 

Std Interior-4 on bottom (90" tall) and a new wall type on top...make it a single layer wall and use "open no material" as the material type for the wall. Align the walls. If you need a wall cap use a molding polyline.  

 

Also...make the "open no material-4" wall type a "partition wall"...otherwise it'll remove your ceiling material the width of the wall.

The only downside is that in vector view the material will appear solid....

See below;
