    Default Door and window swing direction / scheduling

    Summary: swing direction schedule for doors and windows

    Description: I would hope that there was a way to write door (and window) swing direction within Revit. So that you wouldn't need to buy a separate program to do that (and wait for them to release a new software every year or so). That shouldn't be such a big issuea and it's much needed. Actually every project has a phase when that is needed. For both doors and windows. And more parameters than just the "room:to" and "room:from" for example. It's important to know wether door is right or left handed and that should be able to schedule.

    Problem about this is the families are not aware if they get flipped (like clicking the spacebar when placing)....Now if you can disable the ability for a user to use the spacebar or flipping controls then what you want can work.

    But that is exactly why you NEED that little tool/program to updates also. So when for instance a client says that that spesific door needs to be right handed instead of that left handed, then you just flip it, run the program/or what ever it is, and it updates (tags and schedules). That is how it works with separate programs but why not in Revit too. Why do you need to look for an program to do that. It can't be that hard to implement it into Revit. As soon as possible please since it's needed in everyday officework.

    Showing the door swings in plan views doesn't work?
