Custom Door Panel Behind Door Frame

G Ahern
Good Day
I have an issue where I have created a Custom Door Panel**, but when I use it, it places itself +/- 4' behind my door frame.

(** create using slab, etc.. save as Custom Door Panel)

I have checked the door settings and cannot find any place that seems to control where the panel sits.
(it shows correctly when I change the panel to be a standard Archicad panel...)

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Zero elevation is recognised as the outside face of any door / window when they are save out from the floor plan. Anything below that will project from the face of the door, and anything above will be recessed. I am assuming that when you modelled your door, you had an element elevation set.


*Note: was pretty sure that was how it was, but not I cannot replicate it. It is centring the leaf no matter the elevation...
