Style Pallet Question - Int Doors

Recommended Posts

So..I've been doing some experimenting with style pallets and it appears if you add the "interior door" component to a style pallet to make global changes...i.e.; changing the door style from a 6-panel to a 3-panel...it appears all the hinged doors will change to the new style...but pocket doors and sliding doors do not change.  

 

Is this correct or is there some issue I'm missing?  I've tried adjusting the settings in many different ways...without any luck.

 

Thanks...

Hi Steve,
I've not played with style palettes yet, but interested in anything interesting you discover and share. 
My guess would be that you'd need to add each of those different door types to the style palette since they all have their own specification.

Your guess is correct.

I should've spent a minute before commenting... I see that the style palette only allows one interior and one exterior door type.  Seems rather limited in scope.  I guess that would allow you to change door TYPES with different pallets but not different door panels on each different type.

Yea...but, you can only add one "interior door" object to a style pallet.  Therefore...you can only effect a change to one door type.  Not good...unless I'm totally missing something.  

 

FYI..."style" is an available property in the "interior door" object...but, it only changes the style on the "type" of door you select in the "object property" field.  Such as "hinge", "pocket", "sliding"...etc.

Apparently you need to set up a different style palette for each door type.  Not ideal.

IMO this is just a minor limitation of the "Style Pallets".  It doesn't prevent you from selecting other doors and changing their type.

 

It would be nice if it was a bit more comprehensive, but the "Style Pallets" is not a total replacement for "Defaults".  Sometimes we just have to do some actual work rather than expecting Chief to do everything for us.  ;)

I'm with you 100% Joe...it's an absolutely amazing tool.  Very small limitation...especially for the first release of this new feature. I hope they continue to "improve" this tool in future releases...but, I'm happy with it either way.

Nope.  Don't think you;re missing anything.  Make sure to send this in as a suggestion.
