Pocket Door 26 not working

stoneunturned

Am i the only one having issues with Pocket Door 26?

 

Context:

-open a fresh instance of AC

-create a wall

-place a Pocket Door 26

 

Issue:

-After stretching it a few times in plan view ie. making it smaller a few times, followed by making it larger the leaf fills both the cavity and the egress way and then it remains this way with more stretching and there's no way to fix it without undoing or drawing new

-From new, altering its dimensions in settings or the ribbon has the same outcome

 

The leaf doesn't seem to scale correctly with the door and it messes up the leaf size which is calculated in an expression and sent to the schedule.

 

With limited time for playing to make it work, I'd say the door script isn't working.

 

If anyone knows a solution, i need one fast!

I'm on latest 5002

 

Thanks

Door Selection Settings => Sliding Door Settings => Nominal Sizes and Tolerance => Leaf Dimensions

 

Why is not scripted to stay proportial is a different question...

Good call, thanks.

 

I had selected the Leaf Dimensions radio button before editing its value causing the scripting that links wallhole, unit, leaf and egress to kick in and uphold the oversized leaf. Leaving one of the others selected allows the leaf to be corrected manually.

 

Proportionality seems to break when the door becomes too small. I'd call that a bug. It would be great to pass this onto the devs for a library update.
