All-in-One Bi-Fold & Sliding Door & Window - How to setup a Corner Solution ?

The All-in-One Bi-Fold & Sliding  Door & Window Revit Family allows to setup a corner solution either with or without corner post.
The following illustration shows a corner with a corner post where both corner posts miter under 45 degrees.

Following the instance parameter to setup the corner solution for the right Post:
Right FrameVisibility - This parameter controls the visibility of the right post. If this parameter is activated (ticked), the post is visible.
Frame Right Angle Flip - This parameter allows to flip the miter angle of the right post in order to setup an inner or outer corner. Illustration 1 shows the result when this parameter is activated (ticked) and illustration 2 shows the result when this parameter is deactivated (unticked).
Frame Right Angle - This parameter sets the angle for the miter of the right post. The illustration 1 and 2 show an 90 degrees corner with a parameter value of 45 degrees.

Following the instance parameter to setup the corner solution for the left Post:
Left FrameVisibility - This parameter controls the visibility of the left post. If this parameter is activated (ticked), the post is visible.
Frame Left Angle Flip - This parameter allows to flip the miter angle of the left post in order to setup an inner or outer corner. Illustration 1 shows the result when this parameter is activated (ticked) and illustration 2 shows the result when this parameter is deactivated (unticked).
Frame Left Angle - This parameter sets the angle for the miter of the left post. The illustration 1 and 2 show an 90 degrees corner with a parameter value of 45 degrees.

Alternative to the mitered Corner Post, the All-in-One Bi-Fold & Sliding Door & Window Family offers the possibility to hide the Corner Post (vertical Frame) separate for each side. In order to switch off the visibility for the Corner Post of your choice you need to adjust the instance parameters Right Frame Visibility or Left Frame Visibility.

In order to cut the remaining wall at the corner you adjust the ROUGH DISTANCE RIGHT or ROUGH DISTANCE LEFT depending on the side where you want to setup your corner post. The following type parameter dialog shows an increased value for the ROUGH DISTANCE LEFT in order to cut the wall corner.
