I would like to create a wrapped opening, or doorway, in my plan. How can I accomplish this task?

You can create a wrapped opening by placing a doorway and modifying it.


To modify a doorway

  1. Select Build> Door> Doorway  and click in the wall in which you want to place it.  

  2. Once placed, use the Select Objects  tool to select the doorway, and click on the Open Object  edit button.  

  3. On the Casing panel of the Door Specification dialog that opens, remove the check next to the Use Interior Casing box, then click OK.

  4. If room molding is specified on either side of the doorway, create a Camera view to notice that the molding wraps around the interior of the doorway opening.

Note: Wrapped openings of various shapes are also available in the Library Browser by navigating to the Doors & Doorways folder within the Chief Architect Core Catalogs.
