AC11 elevator object

hi, here is the problem i'm encountering:
i want to place an elevator to a 4 story building, but with doors only to the ground and third floor. It seems that there is this possibility in the option "Door position on Current story". But when i select "none" at the first and second floor, i get no door only at the ground floor (which is the home story of the object)
I'm doing something wrong?

Is the "Index of Story to be Edit..." set to the story you want to modify?

that's it! thanks David!

btw: isn't it annoying that regardless of how much you stretch the library part window on your screen, some things like "Index of Story to be Edit..." always remain hidden???

OK, I tried the thread and I looked in the Story settings dialog box. There was the Index of floor to be edited check box bu nothing like the circled area in the example to allow me to turn a door on or off.
I drug the whole object down so the story lines matched those in the middle of the model. Do doors on three of four floors and it is still counting the site level as a story. If I shut off the Site level will it screw up the locations of objects at that level? Shutting off the Site story level might fix the problem, except that the second floor is at that level.
