attaching molding

Any ideas on how to attach baseboards and window/door moldings when metal studs were used.

Finish screws. They look like drywall screws, but they have a smaller head and they are square drive. You will have to predrill the holes. They make a bigger hole than finish nails, so patching is a problem.

If you are just starting (walls not built yet), you can put 2x4 scrap in the channels for nailing.

Also consider construction adhesive.
