Hi everyone, I'm a new CA user here learning the software.
Does anyone know how to exclude the exterior window/door casing at the lower stone veneer pony wall? I can't find anything in any of the tutorials or on here.
I'd like the casing to stop at the stone water table, and have the stone veneer stop at the window jamb, and there be a stone window sill. I assume this is a simple fix that I just can't figure out.
When I create a wall niche in X10 and add casing in the specification dialog box, the casing is not set against the wall unless you make the depth of the niche the same depth of the wall.
Is there a way to change this or is this a bug?
FYI: pretty new to Chief, started with X9, but don't remember having this problem before...
I appreciate any help or input on this problem. I have been having this issue for the last 3-4 months and have just been working around it. I only do as-built and remodel plans, so I need to show the casing widths -especially for kitchen remodels. In a PLAN---For example: 3 1/4" casings when dimensioned, whether with automatic interior dimensions or manual dimensions show up as 3 1/2".
I have contacted Chief support and sent them a different plan file. They told me to change the "Rounding Method" in the Dimension Defaults setup. I have selected both "Grid Rounding" and "Distance Rounding" and it does not make a difference. I have also tried: locating first the sides and then changed it to rough opening to see if I could work around this glitch. NO luck.
I have Chief X9 Interiors and have used Chief since 8.0 and have never had this problem previously. I even opened one of the Chief Architect templates and drew a simple box with one interior wall and inserted a door, then dimensioned---same issue.
Here are my default settings
