Renovation Workflow: Adding New Door Panel to Existing Door Frame

If you are adding a new door panel to an existing frame, the following workflow can be used for your Renovation filters:
Existing Plan View
In the Renovation Palette, assign the original frame (Door 1) a status of “Existing”, but set it to be shown on the current filter only (i.e. Existing Plan).
New Construction View
In this view, you want to show both the Existing frame and the New door panel to be added to it. In the place of the original door frame (which was displayed only in Existing Plan), place an identical door frame (Door 2) with a status of “Existing”.
To represent the new door panel, draw an opening line and assign this line a “New” status.
Both elements (Door 2 – “Existing” and the opening line – “New”) should be Filter-specific for the current filter.
This way, only the new part of the door is displayed as “New” in this view.
Planned Status View
Here, place the final Door (Door 3), complete with frame and panel, with a status of “Existing”, and filter-specific for current (Planned Status) filter.
