Is there a way to link details to a door or window schedule? I would think there would be but I can't figure it out. Or is just limited to text entry in the parameters of the door or on the schedule itself?

I know what you mean but this is a little misleading. ArchiCAD will quantify anything that is present in the model. It does not quantify 2D annotations from any views whether plan, section or otherwise (with the possible exception of fills in plan - I don't recall for sure).
There may be a way to get details into a schedule using some of the more advanced listing functions but they can be famously arcane and difficult to work out. Eric Wilk wrote quite a good book on the topic but I'm not sure where one would find a copy (no listing on Amazon as far as I can see).

The "new" quantifier has been baffling the best of us since it was introduced in version 6. If we are to see improvements in AC14 they would have to be well underway by now. I am hopeful that the revised data structure that came with TW2 may make this more feasible.
