Mulled Door...exterior or interior?

Recommended Posts

If I mull 2 exterior doors together in order to make a patio door that has a mullion, I can't see an option to specify this door as 'exterior' or 'interior'. This affects my schedules as I use a separate schedule for exterior and interior doors, because they're usually from unrelated suppliers. Am I missing something?

I'd love the ability to be able to add a mullion to a double door.

 

I now see that can be controlled in the schedule tab by exploding the Door Tab.

Rob I think it is automatic and dependent on the room definition on one side of the door(s).  This is a little murky in my opinion as chief just assumes we know which room types are interior and which are exterior.  Of course some are obvious but others not so.

That's what I thought, but this door is between a Dining Room and a Deck. A typical door defines as exterior automatically, this mulled door loses some of its auto-defined characteristics. And I'm still getting used to the new schedule functions!

You can now click on a door and specify wether it is int or ext for the schedule, think in door properties.

      I need some help with a two-story house that I am playing around with. I have tried every solution that I have found online and nothing has worked for me. The first two links are the methods that I have already tried in an attempt to resolve the issue. I have also gone to "Room specification>Structure" and tried to change the second "floor" height but it just automatically adjusts the "Ceiling Below" and I am left with the same problem. I feel like if I could lock the ceiling height and then change the floor height then I might be able to resolve the issue. I have attached a picture of the Orthographic Full Overview, the "Wall Type Definitions" from the solution provided in link 1, and "Room Specifications" where I tried to change the floor height. I am not in any big rush to get this fixed, but any help is appreciated. Thank y'all.

      I can't remember, or quickly find which layer controls the text portion of some electrical symbols. For my electrical set, most layers are light gray...and one of them is affecting the symbol display. It's gray as well, and of course, I want it black.
      Can anyone help me out?

      I can't get a skylight to build a square shaft when placing a skylight into a roof plane when the room does NOT have a flat ceiling. In my A-frame project, the ceiling is supplied by the roof and part of the skylight dbx is greyed out. Skylight works fine when its over a flat ceiling. Has anyone else run into this before?

      I have a text macro in a garage plan that references the area of a polyline. In layout, that macro appears blank unless the plan file is open. Is that normal?
      I needed to open the layout file only (or so I thought) and make a few adjustments before printing.

      This project was set up for paper size Super B 13X19 (because I can print that here in this office for ready check). The client (builder) has decided he wants me to change my layout sheet size to Arch D 24X36, so his subs could read and scale the drawings. I wasn't sure I did this right (after reading what few post I could find), I opened my layout>page "0" reset the print to page size to Arch "D" 24X36, which of course changed how my layout template set to 13X19 fits. I then edited my borders and title block etc., to fit the new layout size.  I then went to each additional sheet that I had added notes, additional info for title block, most everything else fit the new paper size ok.  I can't print a trial drawing but the PDF's I printed with the new sheet size appear to be ok. Does the method I used make sense? I'll send him the PDF set of construction drawings, and he can have them printed. I had previously set up a layout template formatted to Arch "D" but I wasn't sure how to get all my plans and details transferred to the new layout template, since you can only have one layout open at any given time?
