Wide single doors

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this has been answered somewhere in here, but is there a way to draw a wide door without it becoming a double one? As far as I know any door wider than somewhere around 1.20 m becomes double. I want a pocket door, say 1.80 m which is a solid one door hiding in the wall. 

Something like this

instead of this

Any ideas? 

 

I use Home Designer Architectural 2014.

If Architectural will let you edit your defaults, go to doors-pocket & edit the width you want it to be. Keep in mind that any pocket door you draw will keep that same dimension. Hope this works?

Create the door, set its width and then go to the "Options" tab and select "single door" otherwise the door splits into two doors.

@ Rookie65

Unfortunately any door wider than 1.20m becomes double.

@ DavidJPotter
I'm afraid there's no "Options" tab in HDA2014, unlike 2015, where there is.

 

Anyway thank you both for answering. I HAVE tried with windows but they do not open. Until I upgrade to 2015, I'll have to live with either "permanently opened pocket doors" (=openings) or I'll have a look if I can draw windows and doors at the same position.

Look again please, the "Option" I mentioned is called "Single Door Only" on the "Options Tab" of any door Specification Dialog (I did my checking in Architectural 2015 so it is not merely my opinion).

I've already written twice, in both posts, plus my signature that I use HOME DESIGNER ARCHITECTURAL 2014 and NOT 2015.

I think he is trlying to say that he checked in 2015 and may not have 2014.
