    All these wishes can currently be made within the existing software, and has had that capability for years.

    Can you please explain just one of the them Chucky. I think you may have confused your softwares.
    This link is about Autocad Arch, not Revit.

    I think you have it confused. ACA has no toggle for turning off heads and jambs. I have created many doors in ACA that you describe. For example, create a gate with a door and just don't include a head in the make-up.

    Setting up frame offsets can be done by selecting the door, then hovering the cursor over the center grip and tab through to y offset and move the door either direction until satisfied.

    Offsetting a sliding door requires the creation of a door with a panel outside the wall.

    I don't know what your last two items are talking about.

    There are several excellent tutorials archived at AU, and most by Paul Aubin are excellent.

    This is a wish thread! I am asking for a toggle turning off heads. I have also created many 'doors' I describe. My point (wish) is that it should be much easier to accomplish than jumping through hoops. Why should I have to attach a custom frame (with no head) to each DR I use, when I could just tick a box to turn off the head. Get it. I didn't post this in the help NG, I posted in the Wish list NG. These 'wishes' canNOT be accomplished in the current software. You can use workarounds to accomplish them if you know how.
    WISH LIST! Yes?!
    Gee I am grumpy!

    For the last 2 items.
    Often when I attached a custom block to a door or window (yes I know I can do this), the frame becomes unselectable with a point click and you must encircle select the whole object at once. This happens with many of my special objects in plan view and model view.
    I think the next one is clear enough.
