    Can you repost the families without using Inline Attachment? I can't open or download them this way..

        reverse engeeniring the file (it contain your family..it was fixed)

        some steps from the fixing path:

        -the shared check was made IN the generic frame not in the door family.
        -i`ve made parameters from the generic frame to be instance based in order to be linked with the corespondent parameters from the host door per every of the 2 frame instances created in the host door family.
        -i`ve locked/alligned the frames to the face of the wall
        -i`ve created 2 instance material parameters in the host family (for the two frames) that are linked to the new material parameter form the frame family. These parameters are instance so you can change them (no need to create new door types when your doors are on different finished walls). (so you have to have the frame material the same as finish layer of the wall to not see the line when joining).

        p.s. I don`t understand why you want to use this convention (to much effort for something that is not real), but here it is. Enjoy

          Nope,
          you need to go to Advanced, Manage Attachments.
          when you selected the files you which to upload you should select "upload attachments" and not Inline. That should work

            Well, after reading the long post about door frames I'm realizing that I'm probably going to have to recreate our door families (so much fun considering the looming deadline!!!!).

            Graphically it reads better this way because the cutline is continuous and singular. However, I'm coming to understand that there is no jamb frame in the OOTB Revit door, so I'm going to need to create that if I want my drawing to be accurate. I need the door to be 36" with a 2" frame, for a total width of 40". The OOTB door only gives me a 36" with no frame...what kind of door doesn't have a frame?????
