Door Marker NCS 15: A Tale of Two Markers?

Not applicable
Hi Folks,

This is weird.

Look at attached two images.

One is of D1 15 swing door, with Door Marker NCS 15, not working.

One is of pocket door, with Door Marker NCS 15, working as desired. Tag shows Zone Number where marker is placed and object ID.
See next message for the image.

Tag shows Zone Number where marker is placed and object ID.

Same marker, two different interfaces. Not listed in duplicate library parts.

Doors shows in schedule, and recognizes Zone Number.

The obvious questions I can already answer:
1. Zones fill the room and are volumetrically appropriate.

I don't know.
I cannot even guess.
I was just figuring assigning it a different marker, then the previous marker would cause it to reread all the parameters of the Marker.
Kind of like New & Reset for a project, or restart for a computer.

Why would the marker/program behave this way?
As Laszlo said, it caused all object parameters to reset. I've seen various cases where objects behave very badly because invisible (to the user) parameters get set to strange values. Often, this happens from eyedropper/syringe use - where the original object interprets the exactly-same-named, but invisible parameter differently then the target (syringe) object. Nothing will fix it but the method Laszlo gave - start fresh with the default parameters for the desired object.
