I've got training w/ Advanced Solutions next week on Revit, but not waiting to learn everything about Revit.  That said, I need some help.

 I've started to develop a project template and I'm trying to learn how doors and door schedules work together.  I've downloaded some simple, basic doors w/ hollow metal frames from RevitCity.  Got these and the door schedule working w/ shared parameters.  This is pretty straight forward.

Problem 1:  I downloaded a door w/ a sidelite and one w/ a transom.  These gave me a little more difficulty because the frame depth only goes to 6".  The other basic doors I could make a larger depth.

 Problem 2:  I want to have borrowed lites show up on the door schedule.  Hollow Metal Frames w/ glazing, but can't seem to find ANY families available to download to begin experimenting/playing with.

Problem 3:  Because of my inexperience w/ Revit at this point, I don't have an understanding of creating families from scratch.  I'm looking for Tutorials specifically on creating doors and borrowed lites, but have found nothing to this point.

 Does anyone have ANY of these things that can help me continue my self-training.  I'd like to go in to my training having experimented w/ as much as possible, so the questions I have in training will not be basic "what's this button do?"

Your not going to get any really easy asnwers here.  Rather than "....I'm looking for Tutorials specifically on creating doors and borrowed lites..." look for tutorials on basic REVIT items including building families of all types.  What you need is there.  Check out the many links under resources and you will find many tutorials that will help you.

17 Part series on creating your own components / families:--

http://www.revitzone.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=692&Itemid=34

 Just one thing- It's based on the Pre-2010 interface. So screen shots won't match 2010 ribbon. But all fundamental concepts are the same. And I can answer any specific questions as you go along, i our forums.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Ian
