I am trying to add an exterior door with a sidelight to my drawing with a 48" long window in the door and the sidelight. I have a similar door in my openings library, but the window inserts are only 36" long. What is the best way to create a door with the windows I need?

Draw it ...

 

Have a look at this thread ... http://softplan.com/...-entrance-doors

 

I'm not at a Softplan computer at the moment, but basically, draw the door frame, draw the glazed insert, and add all the detail you wish with lines and arcs.

 

Use the same procedure as the custom garage door here ... http://softplan.com/...pening-tutorial

 

If anything is still unclear, post a picture of the door, and I'll do a step by step tutorial.

Also, if it's the same but just the height of the glazed panel and panels underneath that are different, you can take the original elevation opening, explode it and adjust the heights as required and save as a new elevation opening.
