Muntin Bars In Glass Entry Door

Recommended Posts

This applies to X5 version.

 

I cannot seem to find the way to apply muntin bars in Chief Core Libraries, Architectural, Doors & Doorways, Entry, Glass Panel, Door E03 DBX file.  Under the Frame & Lites tab, everything is grayed out so that specification cannot be made.  I looked at all the other tabs but cannot find a way to turn muntins on so that I can specify what I want, which is 2 over 2 lites. 

 

The Chief X5 manual says muntins are only available for Glass Doors...........well, this is a glass panel entry door, so I expected to be able to apply the lites pattern.

 

Thanks in advance to anyone that answers.

I think the only way is through an elevation view.  Place the muntin over the glass where you want it and then select the door, and in the edit toolbar you should see a new tool called Load Muntins.  Click it.

Perhaps I should have listed the topic as specifying Lites in the DBX instead   I tried the wall elevation tool and still could not specify lites.  I'm fine with default size for the muntins.

Okay, gotcha.  That's because its a custom door and not actually a "glass door".

You should be able to find a door symbol in the library with the configuration you want.  If not, make one.  Modifying an existing symbol by adding some solids and "Create Symbol".  Then add it to your User Library - it's really pretty easy.
