Double Door with transom on sidelights only

I've been trying to modify the Double Doors with Sidelights to create the above type of door and window set popular here in the UK, but for the life of me I can't find it.  So, to create it for illustrative purposes I've ganged double doors and two individual windows.  However, this doesn't play well with schedules of course and also makes for painful editing if used regularly.

 

Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

yes, we do this from time to time...

we had to bite the bullet & schedule the double door separate to the sidelights. the out of the box doors & sidelight selections can only go so far.

Hi Gerry,

 

Many thanks for the reply, I was just hoping that I was "wrong" and that I've not been looking hard enough in the permutations in the standard set of doors and windows.  Never mind, we live in hope.

Is the UK library based on the INT one?

Ling, that's perfect... 🙂 many thanks.  I think the confusion has come from the naming convention used as I would've called it a transom in the sidelights.  Anyway, I've managed (with some extensive fiddling until I understood the menu options and various drop downs) have been able to create the double door I've been struggling to make for ages.  So once again, many many thanks for looking at it and providing a reply, very helpful. 🙂

The important selections were as follows:-

It is most likely done for consistency, so that when you do have the Transom option enabled, you do not end up having conflicts with there being two transoms.

ps. If that was all, please mark this thread as solved.
