    I created a door leaf that I am calling for different door
    objects. All has been working fine until I created a double
    door. The door leaf comes in as expected for the first call
    but on the second call the door swing line is missing. I am
    some what stumped. if it comes in on the first call, why wouldn’t
    it come in on the second call.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance

    I am assuming that swing line is not part of your custom door panel, but created in the door frame object regardless of the door panel used.

    If you view the door in 3D and change to wire frame view, is the line there at all.
    Maybe hidden inside the door panel thickness?

    the swing line is part of the call which is what
    has me stumped. the pdf shows 2 doors that are called,
    a single and a double, the single and the first leaf of the double
    have the swing line, but the second leaf of the double door
    does not. the swing line is a sub routine in the script
    so may be that is where the issue is.

    Any way your suggestion to add the line in the object doing
    the calling should work.

    Thanks

    If the lines are part of the custom door leaf object, then you would rightly expect them to show for the 2nd door if they work for the first one.
    But I am wondering if in the process of mirroring (MUL) and relocating for the 2nd door, the lines are somehow being moved from their original position.

    I thought about that and tested it by calling the leaf with
    and addx of 4 feet, not mul statement and the line appeared for
    the first object, but not in the following 3 additional calls.

    Strange indeed.

    Check whether the swing lines work with the same transformations as the door leafs. Is there an extra or missing del somewhere before the subroutine call?

    How are you mirroring the door leaf for the double door? Might the swing lines for the second leaf not be mirroring, and hence just get repeated on the same spot as the first? Skip the un-mirrored call and see what happens?
