You can try the followings. 1. Delete those symbolic lines for plan swing cut and plan swing projection on ref. level view. 2. Redraw those plan swing cut with 90 degrees from the wall, add dimensions such as door width and thickness. 3. Rotate that plan swing cut to 60 degrees from the wall. If all dimensions are stick with what should be, then go to the next step. if it does not work, then you have to re-draw it, same for followng steps. 4. Add plan swing projection, then to rotate the plan swing cut to 45 degrees. If the plan swing projections are changed accordinly. Then go to the next step. 5. Add swing angle with the label, then go to family property, change the swing angle to 75 degrees. if the swing cuts and projections both changed accordingly, then go to the next step. 6. From the property window change the swing angle back to 90 degrees, and load it to a project. And try to change the door swings to see if everything works. I had to do this excercises for all my door families, sometimes once or twice, sometimes more than 10 times. I haven't figureed it out. So far that was my only suggestion. Good Luck!

There are some good door families have adjustable angles, you can download and try to see if they can give some hints.

The best solution is to download the "Families guide" from the autodesk site.  It will tell you exactly, the proper way to build this family.  And it will show you so many other important methods for family building.
