The information in this article applies to:
When I create a deck using Post to Overhead Beam walls and add a gate or door, it isn't visible and appears only as an opening. How do I make the door itself visible?
Doors added to a room with a Deck room label will only initially be placed as an opening. Use the following procedure to make the door visible by making changes to place a door or gate in the railing.
To place a door or gate in a railing
- From the menu select Build> Door> Hinged Door , and click on the wall in which you would like to add the door.
- Using the Select Objects arrow tool, select the door, then click on the Open Object edit button to display the Door Specification dialog.
- On the General panel of the Door Specification dialog:
Under Door Type field, click the drop down menu and choose Hinged.
Then click on the Library button next to Door Type to browse a selection of Gates and Doors.
For the purposes of this example, we will use the "Diamond" gate, then click OK to close the Select Library Object dialog.
- Click OK to apply this change and close the Door Specification dialog.
