Door Casing Options

Recommended Posts

I can't figure out how to get rid of the wide casing at the top of the door (one side only) and replace it with the standard casing with mitered corners. I finally figured out how to achieve this on one side of the door by selecting "Separate Trim and Materials on Each Side", but I can't figure out how to mimic this on the other side of the door. See attached image. Thank you

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

I don't think you can. That's called a lintel and the version you are using does not have a setting for it.


You are using one of the predefined templates and much of what's in them cannot be changed.

Yes, you can.

Open a NEW plan (default style template) and tile it beside your existing plan.

Add a door to an interior wall in a temporary building (in the new plan), then copy the door.

With your original plan selected as the active plan, paste this door into the plan.

Is that what you wanted?

Thanks LawB10, that's exactly what I needed. I didn't realize that once I select the initial template I'm not able to change door styles etc, on the fly.

Eric, I'll add the info to my signature, thanks for the tip. 


Much appretiated
