Door Schedule problem

Anonymous
Not applicable
I am having a problem with my Door Schedule. I organized the schedule by Floor Level first, and then by Door Number. The model has a Theatre that is included as part of the First Floor. The Stage Floor is 5'-0" below the First Floor and the Orchestra Pit is 8'-0" below the First Floor. All doors have an 8'-0"h. rough opening. The doors that are at the Stage and Orchestra Pit levels are being grouped with the Ground Floor (below First Floor 20'-0") even though the walls have the First Floor as their home story.
My thought is that the schedule assumes/uses a 4'-0" above the First Floor as a cut plane and because these doors are completely below that cut plane, the schedule recognizes them as part of the floor below.
Can I change any settings (such as the cut plane) in the Schedule (scheme or otherwise) to have these doors be recognized as part of the First Floor? Thanks.

In the scheme settings you could look at filtering the doors by "elevation" rather than storey.

The doors belong to the story by its anchor point. For doors insertion is relative to the header or sill. You will have to adjust some of the doors to be by header and others by sill to get them to read correctly in the schedule.
