Offset Sill Plate for ZIP R-12?

ElevationPole.pdf   I am working converting my Visio drawings to Designer Pro 2023 drawings.   As shown in the PDF (from Visio) - the sill plate is offset by 1/4" over the concrete core of the ICF.  This allows the ZIP R-12 which is 2 7/16 in dimension to be in the same drainage plane as the ICF wall which has a 2 3/4" Neopor foam insulation.   


Other questions: 

1. Where does one specify the sill sealer?   I want to use 1/2" foam gasket.  

2.  How to you align the RIm Joist to set on the edge of the sill plate - I need to place a ZIP R-12 panel next to the ICF foam - so the structure can be properly air-sealed.

The wall type definition . controls the settings your needing, see below.




The foam seal is in the foundation setting, options. It shows as 1/2" in the material list and I don't see a way to change it.


I hope this helps.
