When I change the door type from single to double or vice versa all the doors change to that type. Also when I change the default width of a door to reflect the existing condition and insert that special width other doors change to that width. How do I avoid this problem?

In advance, thanks for the advice.

Yes, with Smart Doors, they are linked to the door definition. If you want different door types, use the Door Manager to load a different Door type, or define a new one to match your need and then insert that door type.

Does that mean you load a different door each time there is a different width and save that door with a title. With existing conditions there are often many widths and types.

You can create a 'generic' existing door type and for the properties of that door, uncheck 'Fixed Width' on the 'Unit' tab of the Door Type Manager.
