Patio Door on attic level not showing up on door schedule

I have these two patio doors on the 4th floor that lead out to a terrace on the roof (attic level)

They don't show up on my door schedule.  I placed a copy of that patio door on an adjacent wall and it does indeed show up on the schedule.

I can't figure out why these other doors won't?

Here is a pic and the attached plan.

The door schedule is in the CAD Detail folder.

With out  looking at the plan:

Do they have "Include in Schedule" checked in their DBXs ?  (At the bottom of General Tab)

Yes, they do. 

But I did just notice that in 3D Chief has interpreted the doors as interior doors. It’s as if the exterior walls are acting like interior walls. 

I know I’ve run into this before but can’t remember what causes it.

Why not add the 4th floor

You’re right I should’ve added a 4th floor.  It’s kind of too late know. Not really but I just don’t feel like it. 

I know better than this. Got lazy. 

I‘m hoping someone has a quick fix for this...

The problem is because your Terraces are defined as Bedroom room types - which are interior rooms. 

In your door schedule, go to "Objects To Include" and check "Interior".

Or, alternatively, define the Terraces as an exterior room type like Court or Balcony.

Thank you Glen!

 

Both your solutions work. 

I chose to define the terrace as a porch to fix it so that the doors revert to exterior patio type sliders. 

 

I had knowingly set those terraces initially as rooms. I thought it was the easiest way to maintain the ceiling structure and elevation with respect to the room underneath. Again, I was going for a shortcut and it backfired on me. 

Thanks to this forum though, I went to bed and this morning, like little Keebler elves, the problem was solved.

But you can define a room as an Attic room on any other level.

 

Glenn:

 

thanks for the clarification

its been awhile since I've dealt with floor A

 

I have always believed that floor A should work like any other floor

 

leave it to CA to keep those "old days" limitations

and allow other floors to be labeled as attic 

they do love confusion
