"Owned" doors and windows uneditable


I'm working with some files and run across something I've never seen.  All the doors and windows have a prefix of the architectural office we received the plans from.  When I click on them, vectorworks knows its a door, shows all the typical door plugin options, but they are greyed out and I'm unable to change anything, even the line weight or colour.  Is there any way to "unlock" these objects or convert them into normal vectorworks doors/windows?  I can of course convert them to group, but that destroys the walls and creates a mess in the file.

That looks like a custom door object. Have yuo asked the supplier of the file if the door is a standard door?


at first, I thought the door might be a style, but I not recognize some of the parameters on the Object Info palette.

@baronjutter This sounds like the same thing you were dealing with in March. (Previous post is here.) What did the firm that created the file say about the doors/windows and the plug-in used when you contacted them?
