Product Code Off/On
SoftPlan Version:
2018 Plus

I used doors that are already in the SoftPlan Libraries- copied them into a new folder- and modified the names/rough openings to match the product we provide in System Libraries. The problem I am running into is the product code is turned off on some of the doors so when I run a SoftList report is indicated Modified next to the door. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for which doors' product codes are ON or OFF. I'll go in and turn product code ON, then close the program and the same issue happens when I open a new project. How to I make sure the product codes for each of those doors remains ON?

 

Thanks for the help!

Unclicking Prehung

Also, I saw a previous post and Bill recommended un-clicking Prehung, which I have already done with my doors. The problem still occurs.

 

**Actually, that is exactly what I needed to do. By unclicking Prehung, the modified message went away. It does create a new issue in that I have to change each door if I reverse the floor plan. But this ensure my take off for doors is correct.**

Prehung

I suspect that Prehung is the problem. With Prehung checked the door is set to be a L or R door. Changing the swing would thus uncheck the Product code because the opening is not the same as defined.

Remember that changing the openings in the system will have no affect on existing drawings that already have that opening.
