I'm not that experienced in frame, and I need something different from what I currently am able to get as an end result. When using round pipe for handrails, the areas where say the midrail runs into a post, I need coped, but more specific than that. I need the coped tube to be short of the center. I need the pipe to only go beyond the start of the post 3/8". Here, this will make it much easier see screenshot below.
I can get it to cope, or I can get it to come to where I need it, but I can't seem to get it to do both without adding a cutout in the assembly level. I need the pipe to cope AND only go 3/8" past the outer surface of the post. Is there any way to accomplish this using frame without adding extra cutouts?

Hi there @nominus38,
I'm sure if there is a way, then @Craig_H will know it.
A good "ER" though, as it would be good to have an option to use the internal face [if there isn't already], for its length/coping in frame, to get this result.

In the frame options dialog you can enter a negative value (-0.375")in the frame extend option.
That's the option below corner round in the Corner Treatment Options.
That combined with coping on will shorten the frame.
this is what I also thought to be the solution, but it doesn't provide a proper result.
Either You use the offset value to shorten the second frame - but then it will not be trimmed back correctly,
or You use the trim and disengage option but then the second frame will be set back to the center.
Do we miss something?
This is exactly what I did, excapt I did it in 2 different frame groups, so the coping didn't work properly.
I thought this also should work from single frame component to amother single frame component, but it doesn't.
