You have to "disalow join" those CW then you can stretch the endpoints, Check your help for that.

Ty - The problem is the top, bottom and horizontal mullions will not be correct if the CW does not extend correctly.

 

I believe the last time I did this, I added a CW, vertical grid just off the corner at the joining CW glass face.  Then I did not use a vertical mullion on this grid or the end grid and I used empty panels in the sliver that was created.

@WW.. So if you created empty panels. a).Did you go ahead and create horiz. mullions? B). the empty panels that were created what did you fill them with? And did you actually have a corner?

Thanks for your help.

Your view requires all the horizontal mullions - just not the vertical corner (and my added vertical).

I found a way through internet searching..

I just changed the system panel to a custom glass wall the same thickness as the mullions..And it seems to work.
