Watched several videos. Of course, all are perfect and easy, magically solving everything.

Making a jig to hold in place for nailing would be a big help. Next time for sure. For some reason, me and trim never seem to get along. My last project, trim from the same HD, not all the profiles were exactly the same board to board.

My last house was easier, as it was a Levitt so had virtually no trim. I prefer the Craftsman style, so much of the trim I put in was square. My current house is “nuvo eclectic” so it has a mix of Colonial, Victorian, and modern trim. I am sort of tempted to rip it all out and do it my way. Stupid popcorn ceilings. But gad, the cost would add up.
