I tried posting this in the dedicated GDL forum but it keeps erroring out while telling me I've already posted it, and it's not showing up either. My apologies if this is a duplication.

"within the maze of macros" there will be a type number that defines what the capabilities are of that element. these type numbers should be set somewhere early in the master script of one of the main macros and referenced in the placeable object.

...Sorry, that feels like a dirty sell, but when I have the answer its hard to not say something.

I tried posting there a while back and had trouble too.
Since then this new section of the ArchicadTalk forum has been created specifically for GDL problems.
So I have moved your post here.
My understanding is that the GDL Center forum will be locked off, so it is still there as a reference but can no longer be added too - although there has been no announcement over there.
This new section is to take over from the GDL Center forum, so post all GDL questions here.

Sorry I dont have time to explore this and give a proper answer right now, but I have played around with them fairly extensively in the past.
Therefore you could probaly duplicate the object and simply change the type number to the pivot door one. However, i am sure there are other ramifications that are difficult to guage without thouroughly understanding all the macros. Have a quick look through as it could be that simple.
Alternatively, I am happy to provide a free trial of our (Cadswift) Infinite Openings tool which does have a pivot door function and can be configured into any panel arrangement. The trial could be extended for the length of the project provided it is not too long.
