An asymmetric sliding door setting or another door object needs to be added. There is an asymmetric double door object so why not a sliding door variant. I've managed to fudge it with a couple of windows and cover fills but it would be so much quicker to have an actual door!

They have basically made it so that the fixed portion of your sliding door perfectly fits your sliding leaf. I find this more annoying when it comes to pocket doors. I do not want the leaf to completely conceal within the pocket, it anything, it is not practical... "Oops, I can't close the door anymore because I got the leaf stuck in the pocket..."

For the time being, for asymmetric sliding doors like in your example, I've used a pocket door in front of windows. The main issue with this though is that pocket doors do not have the standard frame options, so I end up with an extra empty door frame. It works for creating a 2d and 3d representation but I'm not sure how you'd scheduled it and such... it wasn't needed for that job.
