You can change the doors or windows properties anytime during your design process.
You will now learn how to access a door property panel: double click with the left mouse button over one of the lines of the door in the layout window (see next image).
A second method in order to access the properties mask is to click once the right mouse button over one of the lines of the door in the layout window; the following image shows you that the mouse has been clicked over the line representing the opened door.
As soon as you click the right mouse button, a context menu appears with the commands related to the door. Select the last command in the list: Properties.
SUGGESTION: When you open a context menu, always have a look at the title. The title tells you about the item the menu is referring to. If you’re not finding the desired command, probably you have right clicked the wrong entity. That might be possible when you have overlaid objects.
Here we are in the Door properties mask: you can see it in the next image.
With the red squares you can see the most used controls when dealing with a door: opening side and door position.
The opening side (controlled by the Right opening check) is given by the handle position. By default, the handle is on the left, and if you enable this control, you’ll put it on the right.
The Position group allows you to decide the position of the door referred to the room. Especially used with multi-rooms projects, Internal means that the door belongs to the current room, while External means that it belongs to the adjacent room: in this case the floor available in the sill will be the same as the one of the room.
Remember to disable the Show door opening check in case you’re dealing with sliding doors, as the Application does not automatically recognize them.
