But we can already do that with the D1 Door included in the Library.   You will need to make a Custom Handle for the door - but this is the door you can use to get what you are asking for.  It's not the usual way to size a door.  Typically the door is sized per the door panel size - not the outside of the frame size.  Also, the size of the louvers may differ from one manufacturer to another.

You can add what ever Annotation you want to a Door Legend.

In the US library, this door has these options. Check your local library.

 

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Provide the manufacture/model and I can make one for you exactly like it.   There are of course several ways to make a door like that - depending (as always) on what you need to do with it.

What do you need to display in Interactive Schedules?

Do you need a Door Library Part that has a vent that you can change to whatever size you want? Or is it a door that would always have a vent the same size in it ?

Hello, thank you very much for being willing to help. Here is the model of the door I need. I want to be able to modify the size of the vent and display all the dimensions in the schedule.

 

Okay, thanks for your contribution.
