see attached image.
curtain wall with a double door insert not showing up properly in plan as it is showing up in 3d. Elevation is not reading properly either.

Taking a quick look at the cw door 12, try Options > Opening Type > Side Hung Mirrored, and Options > Top Direction > 0˚. One will change the 2D Symbol, the other the opening lines (and swing direction) in 3D.

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.

David,
yer instructions worked well. Only thing is that it's a bit "clunky-cumbersome" to edit the door inserts within the curtain wall. kinda feels a bit weird (until you get used to the settings) what each option setting does....but it worked.

thanks again,

Rob
