Moving a sliding door and re positioning [duplicate]


Okay, I'm trying to make my life easier with a complex landscape scene by using reference objects. I'm specifically focused on the clouds in the scene. I made a file that has only the cloud object. I then open the landscape scene and add that file as a reference object. I then scale and reposition the cloud within my scene as I want. Now, I want to make more clouds, so when I duplicate the reference object, the scale and repositioning I did on the original reference is gone, and the duplicate reference just goes to the center of the parent scene.

I want to be able to duplicate the reference objects, but have them be duplicated from the same scale and place where I made the first changes to the original reference object. Does that make sense? I hope so.

Anybody know how this is...

If the door can be reversed (and that's a big if) then I can't imagine it can be done without removing the entire door frame. The fixed pane is, well, fixed and unless you see a way to detach it from the frame and attach it to the other side then you may be out of luck.

So let's assume you can't remove the fixed frame. Well, you could try rotating the door. This should work, but it would put the rail on the outside of the door. I don't know how this exposure would affect the longevity of the product, and you'd certainly be prone to more things getting built up in the track. This also means that the exterior side of the glass would be facing the interior. A lot of modern glass has reflective coatings and treatments on the outside for energy efficiency purposes. You'd be losing this, and likely by making it worse in the summer (as energy would more readily penetrate and less readily escape). Lastly, if your door is flashed and sealed, and if it has a flange around the frame,...

Sliding doors are a thing of beauty in almost every home. If you have sliding doors that are near a living room or dining room, the effect they have on the room when the sun hits the doors is breathtaking. That description doesn’t even begin to do it justice. It comes as no surprise that a majority of homeowners employ the use of sliding doors, and more specifically, sliding glass doors. Many of these doors are used as backdoors and access ways to patios and backyards. Sliding doors are also a good addition to any home and help increase property value by essentially bringing the outside in. It gives homeowners the comfort of enjoying the view of everything outside while still being indoors (nature voyeurism).

On the flip side of a rather illustrious coin, some homeowners understand just how vulnerable sliding doors make your home. Doors are an integral part of security, and sliding glass doors might be even more so....

A Magic Move transition creates the effect of objects moving from their positions on one slide to new positions on the next slide when you play your presentation.

The easiest way to create a Magic Move transition is to create a slide and add objects to it, then duplicate the slide and rearrange, resize, or reorient the objects on the duplicated slide. Any objects appearing on both slides become part of the transition. Any objects appearing on the first slide, but not the following slide, fade out. Any objects appearing on the following slide, but not the original slide, fade in.

Add a Magic Move transition

Place objects (text boxes, shapes, and images) on a slide.

Select the slide in the slide navigator, then press Command-D to duplicate the slide.

On the duplicated slide, reposition and resize some or all of the objects.

Add any additional text or graphics you want to the duplicated slide, and delete any objects you don’t want.

Expert advice for removing and repairing a sliding door, with step-by-step photos of cleaning sliding glass door rollers and repairing a sliding door track.

Sliding door repairs are discussed in this article; for repairs to hinged patio and entry doors, please see How to Repair a Door.

When a sliding door doesn’t work right, the problem is often that the rollers have derailed, so first check to be sure they’re fitted onto the track properly.


Adjust doors up or down with the roller adjustment screw.

Also make sure the problem isn’t just an alignment issue. Both top- and bottom-supported doors have a roller adjustment screw for raising or lowering the door. In some cases, you have to remove a cover to access the adjustment screw. Remove the cover and turn the screw 1/4-turn clockwise to raise the door or counterclockwise to lower it. Then test the door and repeat until the door is moving smoothly.

The two types of doors that are easiest to open don’t have hinges at all; instead, they slide on tracks. Sliding-glass doors are a popular feature in rooms with decks or patios because their full-length glass panels open the room visually to the great outdoors while providing easy access to the outside. Interior sliding doors are frequently used for closets and pantries, and sometimes to conceal water heaters and furnaces. You can remove sliding-door panels easily to gain complete access to what’s behind them. Follow simple repairs and maintenance procedures to keep your sliding doors on track.

Getting your patio door to slide better

Patio doors slide horizontally — or at least they’re supposed to. All too often, these big, pesky contraptions stubbornly resist opening, and getting outside becomes about as easy as dragging a refrigerator through a sandbox.

The most common cause of a sticking patio door is debris in the lower track. This channel easily becomes...

Sliding Door

Don't believe those lying commercials: long before Chrysler even imagined a minivan VW had introduced our sliding door back in 1967. The door first appeared as an m-code option with for the 1967 splitwindow bus and was standard on the baywindow bus.

Keeping your sliding door working perfectly requires an understanding of how it works. When it's properly adjusted is will sound like this:

Oh that sounds Shweet! It will also close with a light touch instead of a wind up slam.

The door mechanism is pretty robust but some parts wear over the years. Notably, the nylon runner on the sliding track and who hasn't seen a broken inside door handle? When adjusted properly and greased, it should work for years without problem.

Seal Replacement:

You do not have to cut and glue a new sliding door seal in order to install it. All you have to do is remove the hinge mechanism, slip the seal over it and put it back. You can do this all without removing...

When building models in Google SketchUp, you can make openings in your walls in a couple ways. The best option depends on what kind of building you’re modeling, whether you’re using single-face or double-face walls, and how much detail you plan to include in your model.

Using SketchUp’s handy-dandy components

As long as you’re making an exterior model, you can use some of the doors and windows stored online on Google’s 3D Warehouse. Without going into a ton of detail, here’s what you need to know about them:

Components are accessible from the Components dialog box. Choose Window, Components to open the dialog box and then choose the Architecture collection from the Navigation drop-down list (it looks like an upside-down triangle). Components that can cut their own openings generally contain gluing or cutting in their descriptions.

You can find hundreds more online.

Components are editable.

Some components are dynamic. Dynamic...

More and more we see people using horizontal sliding panels on their websites. And they usually look very nice! Some will put a contact or login form in there, others will put some information about them and their website, or even things like a tag cloud or social networking buttons.

Horizontal sliding panels are great for many situations, but like everything else, they’re not always ideal. It depends on the project. To see what I mean by ‘horizontal sliding panel‘, go have a look at my other site Design-Newz, and click on the ‘want more‘ button that’s on the right above the navigation bar.

The Plan

So, what about a vertical sliding panel that would act as some sort of drawer instead of the usual top horizontal sliding panel that pushes everything else down when it opens? While thinking of alternatives to the usual horizontal panels, I thought it would be nice to create something that works in a similar way, but that is a bit more flexible.

Here’s what...
