Wallhole Cutting Through Complex Profile

Red
Advocate

Is there a way to prevent a wallhole from cutting out any trim that might overlap the openings? I was hoping that setting the "Opening Reference" would prevent it, but it does not seem to work either.

The only way I know to overcome that problem is to place the element you don't want cut on a separate layer with a unique layer intersection number if it is a stacked Wall element. 

 

Another option is the wall hole shouldn't affect something placed outside the wall so could that facing be a beam?

Apple iMac Intel i9 / macOS Sonoma / AC27UKI (most recent builds.. if they work)

The beam route is what I am doing. I just wish I could combine it into one profile, but that does not seem to be possible. I wish there was a way to limit the wallhole to the Opening Reference in the window settings.

Thanks,
