Can't Get Window To Go Through Double Stud Wall, Applies Only To Exterior Or Interior.

I'm going around the house to fit custom windows in the framing so that the king studs for the windows are the normal 16" OC studs in the wall. When placing a window it works fine and goes through both walls, but when the window is moved to the edge of the stud it only applies to the exterior.

 

Also, is there an easier way to move the windows directly up against the studs other than entering exact dimensions? The point to point move doesn't snap to the window, and the dimensions I'm allowed to edit when selecting the window aren't always the ideal ones.

      I use Chief architect pro x14. Is there a way to lock wall length once done with imputing all your walls? Every time I try and use the room divider tool my wall always changes lengths; I thinks its just because of the angle I watched a video on how to fix it and was just wondering if there an option to lock your walls from the dimensions changing and not just being able to select them because of the active layer display . I'm new to Chief architect and when I used Revit it had a lock constraint next to the dimensions line, so I never had this problem before. Does Chief Architect not have this as a feature?

      I'm looking to see if there is a way to separate the material between the frame and the reveal of a window (or door).
      When painting the frame it also paints the reveal the same material, and visa versa.
      I have been a long time Chief user but never found a solution - so hoping someone has a good trick. Using X13 currently.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I have a question on creating wall caps.
      I have a plan with 12" Concrete Wall w/ 2" interior drywall for the basement exterior walls. 
      The 1st floor has 6" Siding exterior walls.
      I have a U-Shaped stairs from basement to 1st floor in back left corner.
      I want to place a wall cap over exposed basement wall where basement meets 1st floor in stair well.
      How do I handle this?  I can't find in documentation anywhere.

      Is it possible to model this in CA? (Reasonably close.) How would I do it?

      How would I make one marker such as the one I've shown below? This is for a shower and there's just not that much room for 4.
