Specify Window & Door Casings in Archtrl 2021?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to specify the casing to be used in Architectural 2021?  I have found options for moldings, but nothing for the door and window casings.  All windows and doors are defaulting to a flat profile casing.

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.

Cannot be changed directly.

 

Each of the Template Plans you may choose when starting a new plan use different casings and other trim/settings that cannot be changed directly in the program. 

 

Suggest you open a new plan using the various templates to see the differences. 

 

You can copy/paste between plans.

Thanks for the info.  I had started with the Default style. I found the 'Today's Traditional' has the casings I am looking for.  Am I right in assuming I need to cut and paste each of the door and window types I need from the Traditional plan to my plan and replace my existing doors and windows? (i.e., no way simply copy the 'default' casing to my original plan and have it applied to all existing doors and windows).  

 

It would be great if casings were as easy to modify as moldings though '-)

 

Thanks for the tip on updating my sig.  Done.
