    Default create double door w/ adjustable swing

    I have created a single door with a parameter to allow for a change in the swing angle. so I went on to create a double door with a parameter to allow for a change in the swing angle. in the double door I am able to change the angle to any angle but 90 degrees. when I do so I get a prompt that says it make type and wants me to delete it. can anyone help me see where I went wrong. I am attaching the double door family.test_Double-Flush.rfa

    When I created our firms previous door standard I used a nested family for the door in plan. The insertion point is the hinge corner. A nested component will be easier to control via an angle parameter. You'll want to turn on the center mark of the arc, and constrain that to your reference planes.
    You might want to have two swing parameters, one for each door panel.

    For the masking region, why do you have symbolic lines on top of it? If you choose to keep the masking region in this family, why not set the boundary lines as the line type you want to see, and not have the secondary symbolic lines.
