frameless sliding door? • 25th March 2014

How can I make a D2 Sliding 16 door that is frameless? I'm using ArchiCAD 17. I've tried to set the frame to 0" but it keeps giving me a little bit of wall at the ends. And when I've played with the reveal setting, I get a weird air space between the door and the wall. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks!!
