Door opening lines are reversed

Hi

 

I have a set of exterior double doors, glazed that open inwards, and another set of identical doors that open outwards. In elevation and 3D views the opening lines are not the same. One door has the opening lines going into the the door handles, and the other has the lines mirrored in the opposite direction, why is this happening? ?

You can define the direction of the opening lines in the parameters of the door under opening I think and you can also define it globally using model view options. You can tell the door in its parameter settings whether to use what is defined but the door parameters or use MVO.

Thank you, I found these settings. Although, when I turn off opening lines overide for the window, changing the MVO opening lines settings doesn't do anything.

The only way to change the opening lines is to use the overide for each window and verify they are all set correctly.

 

I am surprised that this is not just a project setting, as all your windows and doors will want to be set up identically.
