As far as I know unless they are associated to a cabinet you can't change the size

make a cabinet with a face frame only.then size the rails and stiles to your overlay( for example a 1/2 inch overlay would have 1/2 inch rails and stiles)add the door then save this cabinet to your library we have a separate library for doors. You can then batch the doors and resize as you wish.

What are you wanting to do? If all you want to do is make a door and be able to resize it then the face frame will work just delete all of the cabinet parts except for the face frame if you use a 3/4 overlay for frameless cabinets then make your rails and stiles 3/4 wide and set the overlay for your door to 3/4 when you resize the cabinet. the door should be the correct size. for example you need a 12 wide by 21 high door make your cabinet 12 wide by 21 high. If you are using cut list the make the face frame material a do not cut material.

You can use a cabinet with all parts removed except the door. That will give you the resize ability.
