Distance from door edge to wall corner

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to control the minimum distance from the edge of a door to a wall corner other than enlarging the casing? I'd like to have 6 1/2" frame to door jamb but have 3 1/4" casing without having to manually adjust the location with dimensions. I can do this by enlarging the casing to 5 3/4" but do not want such large casing - just want more space.

 

Thanks.

Or as you probably know, control the placement by casing width, using the wide casing that locates your jammed door correctly, then select all doors placed thusly, and change their casing widths.

 

Chief does not have an auto-placement feature such as what you may want, but you can go on the Suggestions forum and make your case.

Thanks Gene. I'll post to the suggestion forum as I'm sure this will be very helpful for others. I love that when I insert a door in the corner of a room there is a set minimum dimension that is used...just needs to be separate setting from the casing size.

You can use the temporary dimensions easily while placing the door.

If you have Temporary dimensions toggled on, while placing the door, click on the appropriate dimension and enter the correct value.

It is great that we can specify the number of trimmers but it is strange that they have no impact on the spacing from the corners.  I would like to specify the distance from corners without messing up the casing.
