I have a commercial project - historic hotel renovation & addition. My plans are set up with finishes, walls, etc., based on CA library of materials. I want my Room Finish Schedule to use generic descriptions such as "cpt" for carpet, LVT, PCT, HDWD (hardwood floors), etc. What is the best way to over-ride the materials I selected in defaults?

I am using Chief Architect X9
I can't seem to find a sidelite that is "half lite" only 3/4 lites or full lites.
I'm wondering if theirs a way to customize an object to make the glass smaller?
I have attached an image - this is the closest I could find. I tried looking on the 3D warehouse but had no luck.
(Using the Simpson Door Company - Arlington Sidelight)
Also - does anyone know if on the elevation view you can get rid of the door operation indicators only on the sidelites?
thanks in advanced.
Is there any way to create a small gap or offset between the door and casing? Like a real door would have, to leave just a tiny bit of room for the hinges. Specifically for open interior doors. I've made a door hinge symbol I'd like to use, and I assume I'd have to make a different one for various swing angles, but I'm not seeing any obvious way to create that small gap. By default, Chief's doors just meet the casing at the corner completely, leaving no room. I could force the hinges in there, but they would clip through the door and casing and look less realistic.
I'd also like to add a strike plate to the casing and latch to the door, but short of placing the symbols myself that doesn't seem very plausible right now. Maybe a suggestion for a future version of Chief.
