It's about time. I was getting ready to ask what features people want in the next version of the doors and windows (Thinking very far ahead), when I realized there isn't a comprehensive list of the current features, which are extensive. So here.

Features Common to Doors and Windows

General:
Lite Cut
Optional Open in 3D
Insulated Glass
Independent leaf/sash and trim materials, interior & exterior
Three 3D Modes: Frame dimension, Jamb dimension, Schematic (a glass block)
MO dim Display
Extend frame in to cover furring wall (exterior openings)

Trim:
Width & Thickness of head and jamb casing, interior & exterior
Predefined interior & exterior casings
Exterior crown & head casing overhang
Interior crown, bead, & head casing overhang
Optional interior & exterior sill and apron
Trim int sill to casing edge
Optional 3D detail lines on crown and shaped casing
NOTE: The trim routines are designed to make it very easy for me to add casing and crown profiles. Ask for what you need. The worst that could happen is I ask you to draw the shape.
