Not sure if "embedment" is the right term.

I am trying to construct a section of curtain wall so that it is flush with a solid wall at vertical and horizontal joints. My approach is to cut a hole in the curtain wall by editing its profile. This works at the horizontal joint, but not the vertical. At the vertical joint, the curtain wall wants to embed itself into the solid wall - even if I leave a gap in the edited profile.

Un-checking the "automatically embed" box in the curtain wall's properties does not help.

What is the proper way to do this? (See attached photo).

Thanks!

You may have to turn wall joins off for this wall although I've not seen this happen for internal conditions.

Thanks for the reply.

Disallowing joins in the yellow wall works, as long as I leave a gap between it and the storefront when I edit the storefront's profile. Is there a way to control the vertical breaks in the storefront, so I can remove the gap?

Did you disallow joins in the curtainwall? 

Did you join the yellow wall with the wrapping curtainwall?  You don't want to do that.

As far as I know, there's no way to control joins in the curtain wall at the vertical breaks. Those vertical breaks are not regular wall ends, they are the edges of the hole cut in the curtain wall with the "edit profile" tool. Am I wrong about that?
