Sidelights in door schedule

How do I include the sidelights in the door schedule?  The door itself is a double 6' wide with 2 3' sidelights on both side of the door making the opening 12' wide.

I assume that you created your door with something like D2 2Sidelight 24 which is a double interior door with sidelights on either side?

 

Typically, the default size doors with sidelights would be manufactured as a single mulled unit, at least in the US.  But, with 3' wide sidelights, that is unlikely.  So, as is usually the case, you should model the way it will be built, which would be to mull onsite  a prehung double door with individual 3' "windows" (sidelights), which from the same manufacturer would most likely be matching glazed door panels mounted in a fixed frame.  As far as I know anyway.   For example, use the D1 24 as your sidelights and the D2 24 as the double leaf door.

 

By using the ID field (or another field) you can have the three components grouped near each other in your schedule.  Tick the appropriate Ganging boxes in the Fixtures and Fittings settings panel to have the trim merge for the appearance you intend for elevations/3D.

Karl,

 

Awesome, thanks.  Yes I did use the D2 2sidelight 24 door.  I'll give that a try and see how that works.  Didn't think to use it separately.  I'm also assuming they will make this door in one piece at the company instead of putting together on site.  So if that's the case then I need to add the rough opening in the schedule and the company will figure out the sidelight size?
