yes there is suppose to be a gap there. that is where you fill it with mud to give you a nice corner. if you have large and small gaps that means your corner bead is twisted. if you dont leave enough gap the screws/nails will show.

I really don't understand the gap part either. I think we must call it something else. And yes no coat is very good.

That "gap", and the mud that fills it up, feathering out the corner, are one of the very points of using corner bead. ???????!?!?!?!?

Know what your talking about now, never heard it called "the gap." In fact never knew it had a name, it was just considered part of installing corner.

Me neither. But I guess "gap" is as good as anything. I think I'd call it a "mud pocket".
