Do you glue architraves?

Architraves are glued to hold the 45 degree join together. Intrim Intense Grip Adhesive can be used to apply an 66mm wide x 18mm thick architrave without nails, however larger architraves are recommended to be nailed due to the weight. If window coverings are going to be installed directly onto the architrave, the glue only method will likely not be strong enough therefore will need to be nailed aswell to support the weight of the moulding and the window covering.
