    Patrick, I'm having the same trouble as you. I've tried every conceivable combination of parameters and grips - including chaining a second distance parameter vertical at the door to chain to the horizontal opening width parameter - but either the door leaf skews or the linear parameter grip rotates along with the leaf. I cannot replicate the behavior of this excellent block! Has anyone else figured this out?

    hummm....i did this block with version 2008...back then when you added an action you can place it where ever you wanted so i placed it at the end of the door...then when i added the rotation parameter i was able to select that stretch action...can't seem to recreate this effect in 2010 because autocad now automatically groups/places the action next to the parameter and those actions are no longer selectable to be able to be included with another action?..

    mark this up as progress--lol...

    hey, just did some poking around and found a variable that will display the action in "legacy" mode...

    bactionbarmode set to 0 will bring back the old system of displaying the action as "lightning" icons and will allow you to add that "lightning" as part of a selection set!..

    i have now been able to replicate the block behaviour in 2010!..

    Default Question

    I have created a dynamic door block in Acad 2018 using your swing arc which works very well. I'm wondering if you could take a look at it as the swing and
    the arc rotates but when i rotate the swing and try and change the door size,
    the door rotates past the swing degrees i have set it to. This block is very complex
    (probably only to me) as iv'e had to add accessible signage and clear space as
    they are for school projects. I have no problems if i adjust the size at 90 degrees
    and then rotate the door but i was hoping i could resize the door with the swing
    at any set degree. Any help would be appreciated

    Unfortunately not.

    The stretch you have set to control the doors actual length will only stretch vertically. As soon as you change the angle of the door and then attempt to stretch it just pulls it out of shape.

    You will always have to follow an order of operations for this block to work.

    You could remake this block using geometric and dimensional constraints though. It would be overly complicated how ever.

    Thanks Mark,
    I think i'll use it the way it is. I haven't worked with geometric and dimensional constraints yet.
