Reforma Swing Direction Add-in: Schedule Door Swings in Autodesk Revit

From the Islandic company Snertill comes the Reforma Swing Direction add-in...

"When using the Revit® default Flip Controls for door instances, Revit® will automatically read and display swing direction values (Left, Right, Double etc.) both when you flip the door hand and facing and also if you mirror a door. In the Door Swing Settings Dialog box you simply specify your own project default values for each swing direction and then assign it to all door families loaded in the project. A Door Swing Direction parameter is automatically created when you use the Reforma Swing Direction tool. When you flip a door instance the changes occurs instantly, there is no need to manually update the doors after flipping them. Swing Direction values are consistent inside Revit® Groups as well. The Swing Direction values can be automatically displayed in door schedules. The values you specify are project specific, you can save your project values to an .XML file and load that values into other projects if desired. Users cannot change the Swing Direction parameter value in the door instance properties window nor in door schedules, changes has to be done in the Door Swing Settings Dialog box to maintain consistency in the project. Additionally, when you link a Revit® file into another Revit® file (host file) the Swing Direction values in the linked file will persist in the host file.

"Reforma Help file is included with the add-in."
