I am a novice and am having problems inserting a pocket door. I have no problems changing swing direction with other doors. I cannot change the direction of insertion of a pocket door. v16 pro arch

Are you using a Pocket door from the Door tool? When using the "Flip Inside/Outside" feature nothing happens on a Pocket door, as it's in the middle of the wall. The best I can see is to use plus or minus values for "Frame Inset". This will move the pocket door to one edge of a wall or the other.

Thanks John.
Yes I am using the door tool. I am trying to get the door to slide from the other side of the opening, as if you were facing the door and want it to slide from left to right instead of right to left.

When inserting the Door, use the "Flip Right-Left" option in the Inspector Bar or Local Menu. After a Door has been placed, use the Edit Tool to select the Door and make the change. You should have both "Flip" options available.
