Exactly what are you after? are you wanting to be able to adjust the door swing angle?

You had your glass width as '=(Width - (Do * 2)) / 2' Try '=(Width / 2) - (Do * 2)'. Personally I tend to make a parameter called 'Panel Width' '=Width/2' in this case and the glass formula '=Panel Width - (Do * 2)'

I have modified the file you posted. See if that is what you wanted. I have made ONE of the door swings work, the other you can learn with!

 Just so you know. You can assign lines or geometry to reference lines. To do this, select the line/lines/object and click the 'edit work plane' button in the options bar. select the 'pick a plane' option and select the reference line you want to associate to. Now rotate that line (or assign an angle to it) and the attached geometry/lines will move with it! This is what I did with theRightmost door reference line (the green one). For the swing arc, I drew a curve using the line tool, the going into its properties, checked the 'center mark visible'. This makes the center of the curve appear. This can be aligned and locked to reference planes (as I have done in you door). the curve is then adjested to size (600mm) andaligned to the door.


Personally, I prefer to make a detail item of the door in plan, load it into the family. that way it acts as one piece and can bemanipulated easier, without falling apart, or breaking constraints.
