...And the Saga Continues...
Here's a warning: If you start a project using AC19 or earlier doors, and migrate your project to AC20, keep using the doors from the AC19 Library. DO NOT MIX THEM. At the very least, test your Door Schedules regularly.
I have a large project with hundreds of AC19 doors, complete with parameters defining materials, hardware sets, etc. It was converted to AC20, and the users began adding a few dozen AC20 doors... which don't work with the same schedule. This is because our schedules use all of the available parameters, including "User Defined 1-5". Those spaces in the schedule are just uneditable dashes.
To make matters worse, trying to convert those doors back to AC19 (one by one, which is easier than converting all of the Parameters to Properties of the other doors)... you can't select AC19 Doors in the Settings dialog, since it hides the Migration Libraries, even if you Search. It took me a while, but I figured out that you have to load in the AC19 complete library, and ignore the Consolidate/Migration warnings to see the old Door parts.
So, whoever had the genius idea to remove the "User Defined 1-5" parameters from the AC20 doors... grrrrr. Please make objects 100% compatible for at least one version beyond the point when features become obsolete. It's hard to change our workflow quickly and focus on running a business at the same time.
BIG wish list item: Develop "smart" Properties that can clone or refer to another Property or Parameter. For instance, Property "B" = Property "A" + Object Height + Background Fill Pen #. Then I could universally make New Property = Old Parameter.
