I don't use the style manager or wall tools but just venturing into all the tools I never use in TC. I'm struggling with inserting a door and frame I made and created as a block into a wall. it doesn't snap to the wall its like 3 mtrs away and not in the center of wall. I know some settings need tinkling with but just can't get my head round whats to do  :(

Cheers Pjay

I find it most easy to make the ref point before making the objects in to a block, so select them > press D > set the new ref point, and when still selected make it to a Block.
Else, explode a Block and then do as above, save with new block name.
Or in the Block palette Select the Block, then Edit Content, make something where you want to have the refpoint,
 then use Ctrl + Shift + R to relocate the refpoint by snap to the object you made for it, and then delete the snap object, checkmark for finish edit content.
