I have suggestion.

I often use CleanUp3 plugin to clean my files for unecessary geometry.
The door arc in FleTools Doors should be locked to avoid disappearing when cleaning for stray lines.

I don't quite remember why now, but something tells me not to lock components by default. Maybe it's the red color every time you select the component... :)

Other than locking, another thing you could try in order to avoid the lines getting erased is to open the arc component and draw the radius lines so a surface is generated. Then hide the lines and the surface.

See if that works.

After which ever change suits you, you can then save the component aside with ComponentFinder for future use.

I cannot find any problem with locking the arc by default as it is locked steps inside the component.
i have made some door libraries previously working like this. If you want to delete the arcs(which should not be necessary as it is on own layer) you just unlock it.
I think default is best way to avoid customers deleting arcs by mistake.

You can now produce 45(+) different Dynamic Doors, thanks to Mr. pcmoor and his extremely useful Multi Dynamic Door Panel.

How? By combining it with FlexDoor :)

We've known about this multi door panel component for quite some time now, but it had a catch. The minute you made a copy of it, and altered one of the copies, both DCs would jumble up with sub-components flying all around your model. The only solution was to delve deep into each component and make all of it's sub-components unique - A very time intensive process. So... we decided to develop a tool just for this called 'Make Totally Unique'. After applying this tool to your new door variations, the door and all of it's sub-components will instantly become unique and they will all behave just right.

Hi Carlos,
I just replied to your email about this issue. If you still can't get to the parameters, please post a screenshot/video.

* Edit for reference:
The issue had to do with a crazy DC plugin bug - '/u' was appearing in the folder path where the SKP file was being saved to which would then cause the DC plugin to fail with errors.
