Duplicating the Two-Leaf Opening

The door leaves on a two-leaf opening exist synchronously in the system. This means that both doors show in the pricing window when selling a change order and if one door is set to By Others, the other door is also set to By Others by default. To replace one door, you must create a new opening by duplicating the two-leaf opening.

In the change order window:

  1. Enter a new opening reference number

Updating the Opening

Heading Number

All openings under the same heading must meet the grouping criteria for the heading. Updating an opening may disqualify the opening from the heading. When an opening is no longer in the heading number, it loses opening specific detailing. If the heading for the opening includes Opening Type as a grouping, you must add a delimiter to the heading number to not lose the opening specific detailing.

In the Heading No. field, Add a delimiter to the heading number e.g. Update 010 to 010.1.

In the Open Type field drop-down list:
