Hinge Lines not in Print Preview

No matter if I make this gate wider or smaller the hinge lines won't show up in print preview.  It looks like it hinges but really it's going to cut out.  How can I fix this?

    Hinges need to be straight and either perfectly horizontal or vertical (like anchors)

    the gate hinge is meeting the post

    Also i kept getting these extra doors poping up  if you select the wall those arched door are on and send it to the z layer 39 they appear for me



    anyway I deleted them

    When you bring shape in from MTC they can often don't have perfectly straight edges and or vertical or horizontal edges
    I think this maybe because PCS works on a lower tolerance than mtc 

    The door edges were not straight or vertical so I cropped them so they were

    with the gate i made a hinge by quad drawing 2 adjacent rectangles one welded to the gate on to the fence post







    Any Wow this is a rather impressive file and didn't it make my pc work hard rendering it

    @Crazy_Mr_Zing  Thank you!  I wondered what happened to that double door on the first house.  It showed up as a little dot and I could never find it again to delete it.  Now I should have remembered about cropping the edges of those doors.  Remembering all the things necessary to PCS is a problem LOL.  I see what you did to make the gate hinge and I should have remembered that too.
    Also I so appreciate your comment about your pc having to work hard on this file.  I thought mine was dying or something.  Every time I did something it took forever to render it and there would be a bright flash when it finally did.  Scared me!

    Those extra door had me dumbfounded for a while because i cropped the doors and still no hinge lines ? then the extra doors appeared I had thought may be the file was corrupt and thought oh no you might have to start again

     I was thinking maybe a Simpify or a flatten paths may have helped , Not that I remember and or fully understand what they all do
