I wrote the instructions down as not to forget:

Make a Double Garage Door Procedure
If you need a double wide for the wider garage door:
open a new blank PLAN
draw a wall & insert the door you want
Remove the casings & threshold
In A 3D overview Use the Delete Surface Tool to remove all the wall layers
Nothing but the door showing use Tools/Symbols/convert to symbol  then Add to the library using default settings
Back to plan, delete the wall, then insert the new symbol from the library
copy & paste to get 2 of them. move side by side.
Go to 3D overview and Convert to a symbol, this time save as DOOR & rename
Delete the first single door symbol from the library
You are good to go.

Thanks for Posting that....

 

you could also export the Door from the Library and Add it to your Post for Others perhaps....

Good suggestion Mick

I started messing about with this procedure after encouragement from Michael.

Thanks always happy to have another Symbol :) , I have been messing with the Delete Surface Tool since Michael Posted the Tip over in the Tips Forum , it was how I cleaned up the really old NanaWall Library by DMDz and made a few extra Panels ( in the Symbols Forum already)
