For some reason the balcony doors now open inwards. They used to open outwards since I got the house on Belli day 1 april 15th 2019. This is terribly inconvenient for my bedplanning so hopefully this is just somekind of script glitch. However I tried to rezz the Westminster open floor plan version and that one has the same problem but even worse, on that style the doors don't even open properly but more at an angle. 🐹

Ok I tried making a ticket but the support page only allows tickets about account issues so I'm not sure what to do here, this is how it used to look, ignore the hamster with the giant gun: 🐹

Within Land&Region, you have the option of Linden homes. Lil also tagged Abnor, so either way, I'm sure you'll be getting a reply

Strange it only showed account under issue type before but now it's working. Will hold off creating a ticket though since Abnor has been tagged and this issue is bigger than just my house alone.

I've checked on a Winchester I have and yes, I have the same issue; really weird, it crashes with all the furniture :( . I hope they can fix it

Just in case you need it in the future: in the support page, were you logged in? If you were not, the account issue is the only one you can choose from

Oh you know I gave up finding the support page through the home page so I googled it and that's likely what happened then, good catch. :)

I assumed this was an intentional fix.  As a general rule, exterior doors should open inward, otherwise, the hinges are exposed, making breaking into homes a fairly easy task.  Of course, RL consequences don't always apply to SL, and Linden Home doors don't even feature hinges, but from an architectural point of view, inward is correct.  

I like the sliding doors idea, especially if they are pocket doors so the opening can be as large as possible...all the benefits of open doors without the added clutter.  I make all of my add-ons with pocket doors for this reason.

That really depend on where in the world you live, here in Sweden all doors more or less open outward for fire security purposes. I can see your point but the thing is in this particular theme the other doors downstairs open inward and that's fine but the balcony doors move in so far on the second floor and many of us have our beds in that exact place so it ruins the whole room. I totally like the sliding doors though that would solve alot of problems with space. 🐹

Good point.

Whereas, doors swinging inward are easier to force open with a shoulder or solid kick (and there are doors without removable hinges to combat the problem of hinges being a security risk).  Also, doors opening inward are more vulnerable to wind and rain, thus needing more weather-proofing.  

Where I live, our front doors opens inward, but our back french doors and our neighbor's upper balcony doors all open outward.
