Entry doors w/sidelights

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

What do you folks do when you want to put sidelights next to an entry door? On a full glass one I make a fixed window & adjust the frame. Yet when I ama using a door w/some detail, the best I have found is to make the unit a pocket door so it shows the slab. Yet on the floor plan you see the area where the doors slide in to eaither wall? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you!

You can place a door, set the door swing to "0" inches and resize to suit or you can place a window, make it "fixed" and then change its attributes to look like a side light, either method works just fine

Thank you,

David, I like that idea, yet on the elevation view, it still shows the arrow pointing to the hinge side.

Kbird, I will look more into that later.

You can turn the Hinge (Opening ) Indicators off if desired, though it turns them all off , in the Display Options if desired.

 

From the manual:

 

To show/ not show opening indicator arrows in 3D

views, turn on/off the “Opening Indicators”

layer in the Layer Display Options dialog.

I will give that a try. I am hoping it will work when doing a 2D elevation view.

Thank you again.

It does , I usually have them turned off myself , you have to turn them off while in the 2D view though, if you are not aware EVERY view has its own display Options DBX (dialog box)
