    Flipping doors

    We can flip doors in Revit but i don't want to do that in the projects we do.
    We got left swing doors and right swing doors and thats it for interior.

    Now i got a family from someone which is perfect for me because you can only swing in 1 direction and it stays a left-swing door.

    I have been searching in the family how i can do the same thing to my own families but i just can't find it.
    Maybe someone here can help me and point out how they made this family? and then the flipping part of it?

    Isn't that just the other flip control thingy, 'Single Horizontal' ?
    I use that as well, it basically rotates the door instead of flipping it.

    Kinda feels like when I was still working for a boss. Collegues calling me over after they tried something 20 times and I just stand there when they tried the 21st time and it all works as it should. They thought I was a wizzard sometimes

    We call that "proximity logic" around here.
    The software won't work correctly unless it detects an IT guy nearby.

    That or you actually use it correctly when you’re walking them through what you thought was wrong.

    Nah, I always let the coworkers show me what they did, without interfering, just to see what it is they did, so I can explain what went wrong. 9 out of 10 times it then worked.
    And I like the "proximity logic" term !

    We get that all the time. I've trained the staff to not worry about it. Just call somebody over and let the software think it's making you look foolish. We laugh over it now since it's nearly became a meme

    Not exactly IT related, but along these same lines:

    I was at someone's desk one day & they mentioned that they could hear an annoying buzz.
    Sure enough, I could hear it too. Sounded like it was coming from the corridor near them.
    So I walked over to find out exactly where it was coming from, and I couldn't hear it any more.
    Back to their desk and BUZZZZZ
    Followed the sound again and it disappeared again.
    Every time I got near to the sound, it quit. Only buzzed if I was not nearby.

    Finally turned out that there was an automatic lock on a service door which had a motion detector. So as soon as I walked over, it released and stopped buzzing.
