Ok. Then I'd check frame width inside door settings. It must my set to "Custom" instead of "Fit Wall thickness".
That is what come to my mind for now.
Thanks. Setting to custom or frame= wall thickness makes no difference either.

I am an archicad rookie, so it could be one of the hundreds of door settings.


Since you are newish to ArchiCAD, here is an important tip ( I think) about door settings. There are possibly ( I haven't counted them) hundreds of settings, and one of very frustrating problems with this is that after you have spent 20 minuets getting it all configured, tried it out a couple of times perhaps, done a little more tweaking, you can loose it all with one click - if you change the Wall Closure type after you will loose every setting you must made. Very frustrating that changing any one of the settings can result if changing all of them. You will soon learn that the Wall Closure setting needs to be the first setting you make. This is why it would be good to have the settings dialog windows in a different order than they are. After using the program for a while you build up a good set of Favorites and use some other methods for modeling doors that make this not such a big problem as it can be for new users.

Try changing the Anchor, Header to Wall Base instead of Still to.
Thanks James. That did the trick.
I didn't catch this one because I model baseboards separately.
So the "Opening Reference" on the Profile Editor is just for the symbolic floor plan display, right?
