A standard French Door can be easily created using the standard Door Tools.  

To create a French Door

  1. Open the plan in which you would like to create a French door.  

  2. Select Build> Door> Hinged Door  from the menu and click on a wall to place a standard door at that location.

  3. Click the Select Objects  tool, then click on the door to select it and click the Open Object  edit button.  

  4. In the Door Specification dialog:  

    • On the General panel, click the Door Style drop-down arrow and select Glass from the list.
    • Under Panel Frame Options, change the Frame Bottom value to 4"

        Double the Width of the door in the Door Specification dialog to automatically create a double french door at this location.
