Door Schedule Parameters

Not applicable
So I have a storefront door that I am able to input overall storefront height and width. I am also able to input the size of the sidelight panels and by default the remainder is the door width. So technically there is no door width parameter which is a problem when it comes to the door schedule.
The door schedule shows the overall wxh of the storefront, which is 14'x14. But what i need is the door wxh.

How do I get this information on the schedule if there is not parameter for it?

You can't unless you want to edit the object to add a parameter that will show the calculated value of the door width.
Then you can list that parameter in your schedule.

I am not being successful on editing the door. I don't see where or how I can edit? Any ideas?

You have to open the door library part (Open Object...) then add a parameter, in the Help files see: User Interface Reference > Dialog Boxes > GDL (Geometric Description Language) > GDL Object Editor, Parameters. This takes some understanding of the GDL environment in ArchiCAD.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.
