Is there a currently available way to apply a separate color and line type to the swing of the Swinging Door object?

I've often wished that door swings had their own layer.  I've never seen it come up as a suggestion though... have you Chop?  I've not been around all that long so could've missed it.  Seems like it would offer a lot of benefits.

Not a plan view issue per se, but I'd love to see swing control for doors that varies based on the view. Example, open in camera views but closed in section views.

Likely it has but can't be sure.  It would be on my list of nice things but not way up there like the things that need to be fixed just so a workaround can function.;)

      I have downloaded the three garage door catalogs from the Library, and non of them have a standard wide paneled garage door. They also do not have a wide paneled 8' high door (5 panels high)
       
      What they have is 5 panel high flush doors - so this can be stretched - cool
      But there are no standard paneled, wide (16' and 18') 4 or 5 high garage doors.
      Does someone have access to such doors? 
       
      The long panel door comes in both 4 panel wide and 2 panel wide - very good.
      The door with the 4 panels across come should also come with 8 panels for wider doors.
       
      Am I missing it somewhere? It's like the most common door used from Menards and Lowes. Starter doors.
      Thank you

      Here's the door I need to specify, an Andersen A-Series with three panels:
       

       
      Here are the options that chief gives me for a hinged patio door:

       
      Should I just write a note on the drawing that says 'my software can't make a door like that...'  I'm embarrassed to admit this to Kevin, a fellow local designer who is thinking of moving to CA or a similar program, because I always talk up how great Chief is but then there's stuff like this.

      Hey All, 
       
      Is there any way to include the jamb width in a door schedule? For example...
       
      Door Unit is a Marvin Clad Ultimate CUFD 3070 S LHIS
      Door Frame Size: 37 7/16" x 86"
      Door Jamb Size: 1 3/16"
       
      Door schedule shows the width as 35-1/16...**37-7/16" - (1-3/16 x 2)** and I want it to show 37-7/16
       
      Is there a macro I can edit to act more like the widow schedule preforms?
       
      Thanks is advance,
      Austin

      Hello all, 
       
      Is there an easy way to separate interior and exterior doors into two different schedules?
       
      Thank you in advance,
