    double acting door family swing angle parameter

    I created a double acting door family with a swing angle parameter that allows the user to change the angle of the symbolic lines that represent the door swing in plan view. with the double acting aspect I have symbolic lines that represent the door swing in plan on each side of the wall. for some reason I cannot change the swing angle greater than 88 degrees. when I choose to go greater the family breaks and I get several error messages. I am attaching the family for your review. the family was originally built in revit 2015

      In addition to MP's post, your lack of reference lines to drive the angle parameter is what's causing the problem.

        can you elaborate on what other reference lines I should have? now I have a similar family (single acting) from which I built this double acting door family and that single acting door family has no problem going to 90 degrees. I dont understand why there is a difference.
