inherit parameter attributes in object/door/window settings

who finds it annoying that object/door/window parameters revert to that objects default when you change from one to another?

with the introduction of subtypes and a more structured parameter approach from graphisoft, i wish that we had an option in door/window/object settings that enabled the object to inherit any parameters originally defined when browsing/changing objects.

for example, changing door types . . . you may set all of the parameters up for a specific door - frame width, rebate, etc.., etc.. and at a later date need to change that door. any common parameters are lost back to the new doors default values. . .

Everyone. Except people who are dead, or are otherwise not using AC.

I'm compiling a list of time sink wishes: simple stuff that should already work, that we have to manually compensate for every time. This is on it. Essential.

Drives me nuts. There have been many discussions on this forum and the old email list. Unfortunately, at this time there is simply not a good door/window solution for AC that I know of.

While I would like to have some way of maintaining parameters between objects, it needs to be an option, not a mandate.

There are times where you *want* the default options, or want to revert to them from what you have set.
