Simply is there a setting for changing the value of a door swing so it will display at 30, 45 or other angle, than the default 90 degree opening in plan view? Revit help does not appear to address this anywhere. Thanks

it is not hard to add a swing angle parameter to a door or window family - there is an excellent tutorial on this in help. i cannot find it right now, but the summary of it is - Controlling Angular Dimensions with Reference Lines the key is using a reference line, and an angular dimension with a parameter. i tend to place it in the 'other' category and also make it an instance parameter, so it allows me to adjust any door without effecting the whole family. mr spot knows much more about this and if you are lucky he'll give you more pointers.

Well, after making this post yesterday, I decided to simply create a 45 degree door from the standard Revit family provided and it worked just fine. However, I need to learn more about working in Families which is actually the last piece to my puzzle of knowing Revit. I have most of it down but as LATEMORE has pointed out below there are simply other crucial steps which I must know about. I did download the passage door provided by BOLANDERERIC this morning and it works even better as it lets you change the angle on the fly. I will look at this one in particualar to understand other parameters in the family. Thanks guys for your response.
