Is there a way to make the door appear in to from zone?

Archicad seems to be possible only when the edge of the zome and the wall are in contact.

A door will only come out if the zone area contains a wall.
End of test ^^

Zones have to touch the walls the doors and windows are in to recognise those doors and windows as being to or from that zone. If you are looking to extend the zone in to the reveal there is an option within calculation settings to allow zones to fill in to the door reveal dependent on the reveal depth.

is this?
If so, what do you mean?
I think it will be easier for me to understand if there is an image.
My English is short....

 

Aren't you supposed to move the door backwards?
The door size, location should be there.

 

You can't even increase the zone. A zone is associated with an area.

The control of zone calculations are under Options > Project Preferences > Zones. Remember to use Design > Update Zones for changes to have effect.

Hi, I think that Lee Hankins was talking about this setting:

Nothing changes?

500 is a very deep recess.

Try a smaller figure like 50.

 

But I don't think that is the issue.

 

Are the zone, wall and door all the same renovation status (all new or all existing)?

The zone must touch the wall that has the door.

The zone must have a height and the door must have it anchor within that height.

 

Do you get anything if you use 'related zone' rather than 'to zone' or 'from zone'?

This doesn't seem to be the answer either.
It seems that the wall or window should overlap rather than the reference line.
So I am trying to change the wall.

thank you

I just added zones to rooms (inner edge method) with a few doors.

The zones don't go into the door recesses and the wall reference lines are on the outside and it all works just as I expect it to.

yes!
However, Archie does not work even if the reference line and the zone area overlap. It looks like it was made based on the wall only.
The presence of either to or from is related, but
It's not okay to not have both.

Aki can't do it, so I guess I'll have to change the wall in another way.
Thank you always for your replies.
