Framing Configuration may be found in two locations:
1. Choose Framing Configuration from Wall+ menu.
2. Choose Configuration Type that corresponds to framing layer of the wall.
3. Select L Connection, End Connection, V Connection or T Connection.
L Connections, End Connections, and T Connections are supplemented with options that bring further flexibility for predefining outer corners, B (Butt) outer corners, inner corners, or B (Butt) inner corners.
Wall+ recognizes inner and outer corners so that you can adjust different joins. It gives you more flexibility in modeling and easily handles complex situations:
Example with inner corner: You can predefine and change Butt connections
Framing End Extension
Framing End Extension - makes frame offset from the wall connection.
Lengthen Top/Bottom Plates

Build in Place and Link to Connected Wall
Build in Place – writes Yes/No information into the plate instance parameter if plate is build-in-place or is prefabricated with the whole wall frame.
Link to Connected Wall – option if the plate is near a wall corner and such an element should be prefabricated and connected to the connecting wall.
A plate like this will have Link to Connected Wall or Build in Place parameter switched ON:
You can also modify the path to all configurations in Configuration Files‘ Location.
