I have a beam which should sit on the 2x6 wall for the full width of the wall. The beam end seems to snap to about 4 1/2" on the wall no matter what I do. I've searched for some setting which controls the length of the beam bearing but no luck. I've turned off cleanup but the beam won't cooperate. Any method of dealing with this?
Beam Bearing Length

Yes, that is indeed the setting involved with this. The help says this setting sets the depth the beam projects into a concrete or concrete block wall. Since my beam is resting in a wood wall, the projection is measured from the outside surface of the wall and has no relation to the part of the wall which is defined as bearing. Some logic involved here but not what I would expect. Thanks.

0" works nicely from a display point of view but gives an incorrect length for a cut list. It is only a mild pain to add up the wall thicknesses to get the correct projection. I think this is a typical case of the programmers doing something which appeals to them rather than addressing the real situation. I'm not taking a poke at the programmers. I have a lot of respect for them and how they are able to make this all work. A simple fix might be to allow the projection setting to be turned off.
