I'm trying to make a custom door panel. I know how to do it, but when I go to save it, File->Librairies and Objects->Save Selection as Library Part.......I do not have the Save Selection As Library Part option. Its not in my drop down list. I reloaded the libary but its still not there. Am I missing something here? Have searched the forums but no luck. Help!

Thanks

I give....

Tried to SAVE SELECTION as OBJECT.... convert to DOOR PANEL (LEAF)...

Refresh BIM LIBRARIES...

I can see the panel as an OBJECT in the BimLIBRARY... I can select it and see AC16 believes it's a DOOR PANEL...

But will NOT show up in the CUSTOM DOOR PANEL pick list...

You know, this happened before... only it WAS in the pick list.... Then, out of no where, I noticed that elevations / 3d were showing the doors as MISSING (meaning they rendered as an empty hole with a frame)....

Bug perhaps? Or am I just out of luck and should push my project back to PLN....

Don't know if any of you can corroborate this, but opening and working on objects in TEAMWORK file slows down to 1/10 or worse the operating speed of a PLN file...

I should mention that the LEAF is available in the PLAN file version... my tactic has been to create a PLAN file for OBJECT EDITING... link to libraries that are the ROOT of the BimServer Library.... Make all changes there, then REFRESH the BimSERVER libraries just to avoid this slowdown..

Please, someone back me up here???!!!!!! or suggest an alternate method of creating parts to be used in all my projects....

I have three projects that need the same door panel (which, btw, should be a STANDARD OPTION / High and Low Louvers).....

Why can I NOT save to my LINKED library? Am I the only one who feels this way? (wouldn't be the first time!)...
I totally agree.
You have to go to the Library manager, select the door panel object, save (export) it to the linked library folder, delete the object from the embedded library, reload the linked one, and voila... just a few dozen click more than needed

Totally have the same experience. For me, I will just modify the part and save into the "embedded library". Then later on will export out to the hard drive, then refresh the bim server library.
