 Multiple Transition Editor Options:

Transition Product
Choose a product to be applied to the transition, such as Reducer.

Note: Only products sold by a linear unit of measure can be used as a transition product. Cannot sell by the EA unit.

Style
Define whether the transition is a door or window, and optionally display door swing on the drawing.

Length
Define the length of the transition. Adjusting length will also adjust the width of the punch-out to match.

Selecting this option will share the transition across two adjoining rooms. The blue arrows as seen to the right indicate that the transition is shared across two rooms.

Product Extends Through
Selecting this option will indicate that the product in the room extends through the doorway/opening. Define how far the product extends by going to File > Measure Options > Estimating and entering a length in the "Extends through doorway" field.

 Tip: Edit an existing transition by double clicking it.

5. Continue adding transitions or select "Done" in the bottom right of the Multiple Transitions dialog box.

TIP: If you have difficulty clicking on a transition to select/edit it, click the drop-down box in the explorer window for the room the transition belongs to. You can then select or double-click it from there to open the transition editor and make changes.
