You need to create or edit a Profile Styles in the Style Manager palette. Once you have closed profiles within the drawing window that has opened, then those tools will be available for use. After creating and ‘finishing’ the Boundary & Holes, click on the green checkmark in the palette header to return to your normal drawing. Your profile should show up in the preview window at the bottom of the palette. Now you can use it in a Door, Window, Railing.

I have found it best to create these profiles at & to the upper right of the 0,0 coordinates.

Thank you John R. But guess what, I have been surfing around in tools. Those that are housed with Door and those that I can get my hands on in Customize tools by clicking in the box Architecture. Now I can't find them at all. I know I am a pain, just can't help it.

This is where I find the Profile commands in my 32-bit Platinum edition "Customize" dialog.

If they aren't there, you should reinstall.

Here's some fun you might try out; a nice multi-windowed garage door.
A simple Profile, but each "hole" gets a Muntin or a Block. Choose "Single" and enter a number that corresponds to the Hole. The numbers follow the way you selected the holes when creating the profile.
