Door Casing is Proud of Complex Profile Base Board

I have made a complex profile that includes Baseboard on a wall and the door object recognizes the Baseboard as the edge of the wall and places the door casing overlapping the baseboard rather than making them flush. Is there any way to trick the door into thinking the wall is thinner? Any other solutions?

Try this: In the Profile Manager, check the Opening Reference lines' locations, they should be inline with the wall surface.

Discussed at length in various threads... Graphisoft believes this feature is working as designed (I believe it is a long-time bug)... Door/window placement ignores the location of the opening reference line within the wall profile.

What the door pays attention to is the anchor. In this case with baseboard, if the door anchor is at the base, it will be proud as you illustrate. If the head of the door is against the wall surface (and there isn't a bump-out in the profile there), then switching the anchor to the head will place the casing against the actual wall there as intended (and no doubt where you opening lines are).

(An alternative is if your baseboard is a fraction of an inch above the bottom of the wall, and the door is anchored to the bottom of the wall, things will place as you with also.)
