Does anybody know why the "wall thickness" in my door schedule is rounding up to 4" and 6" instead of showing up as 3 1/2" and 5 1/2"? My dimensioning settings are all set to round to nearest 1/8". Or, is there a better way to indicate jamb depth for doors? I noticed that when I add a column for "Nominal W x H x T size," it accurately shows 3 1/2" and 5 1/2". However, I want jamb depth/wall thickness to be its own column.
Make sure your schedule is a View, and that View has its Dimensioning set to the correct Dimensions Preference.

It might make very little differnece but I like to make my doors 4 9/16" or 5 9/16" since that is the size of door jambs sold in this area of the world. I still make the walls with the framing/core as 3 1/2" and 5 1/2" since that is the nominal dimension. It does not show up on the Plans, but it does let me show show the correct widths to order the jambs in the Interactive Schedules. And the reasons for that are related to how the Interactive Schedules are exorted as Excel file. Just a thought you might be interested in. The point of the Interactive Schedules I make are for the sake of ordering the materials. Using nominal dimensions for walls is ok so long as you are consistant about dimensioning face to face or center to center where it counts.
