Where do I find the check box to enable interior openings to be pushed tight against the wall?

I can’t move closer than 4 1/2”!, really sucks when your trying to fit a 3ft bifold into a 3’1 1/2” space

 

Thanks

Gary,

 

I don't know too much about v2020 but in v2012 we go into System Options->Dimensions Options->Frame Clearance and set to 0" or some other distance that you want.

Alternatively, you can place your opening farther away and use Set Distance Between. This will override the Frame Clearance measurement in System options or Drawing Options. 

 

Of course the frame clearance setting is also available on a drawing level in Drawing Options as well.

Without changing the default frame clearance in the drawing/project options, there are a few options available.

 

If you get a message upon placement asking if you want to 'Resize opening to fit to wall?', simply say 'No' and the opening will ignore the frame clearances and draw at full width. If you have already allowed the opening to resize, you can edit it back to its full width(enable the product code again) and it will ignore the frame clearance.

 

If the opening is already drawn and you want to move it closer to one side, add an extension and a dimension to the wall. Edit the dimension to override the frame clearance.

You can also use Adjust Item. Adjust the opening closest to the perpendicular wall to as close as you want it then grab the other side of the opening and adjust it to the correct size.

Gary,

Frame clearance has been removed in 2020, I’ve adjusted frame width to 0” in system options,project options and drawing options but still can’t move closer to the wall.

 

dimensioning worked and adjusting works

 

thanks for the replies

I found the "adjust" method a while back and is the easiest for me.  Its done then and there with out searching for something else.
