Why do I not have the product code for the door when I draw it with a right-hand swing?
 

Version(s): 11
When a door is drawn as a prehung unit the swing is already predetermined and set up in the product code. All of the standard doors that come with Softplan are created with a left-hand swing. In order for the product code to be valid, the door that is drawn must match the swing that was defined for the door, otherwise the product code will automatically be unchecked from the door and the product code text cannot be displayed on the plan. New openings can be created in the System Library to provide the optional configurations of the door in order to maintain the product code.

When a door is drawn as a prehung unit the swing is already predetermined and set up in the product code. All of the standard doors that come with Softplan are created with a left-hand swing. In order for the product code to be valid, the door that is drawn must match the swing that was defined for the door, otherwise the product code will automatically be unchecked from the door and the product code text cannot be displayed on the plan. There is an option within the System library to uncheck the Prehung option for the door so that any swing can be drawn for the door and still retain the product code.
Go to File> System Library > Library Type: Openings. Select the Door Library and highlight a unit and select the Edit button. In the Configure Opening menu, select the Edit Individual Component button. In the Component tab, uncheck “Prehung”. Click OK and save changes to the system. Once that door is drawn on the plan it can be drawn in any orientation and still retain the product code.
