Frame Type 3, rebate Locked - ArchiCAD 16.

Has anyone else noticed this? The rebate width for all doors in the US ArchiCAD 16 library is locked to 1/2". The rebate is available for Frame Type 3. This annoys me an unreasonable amount.

Why even have this option if we can't change it? I opened the D1 16 door to look at the GDL and I can see where it's locked there too, but don't know how to fix it.

The rebate wasn't locked in 15 or earlier. I need to be able to change this. I found a work around of importing a door from 14 or 15 with a rebate I want. It then is locked to whatever that dimension is. But seriously? Hopefully someone knows something I'm missing.

Little things like this so easily derail me as I try to figure it out.
