replacing sliding glass door


do we need a sill plate under the door? Can the slider sit flush to floor opening?

Modern doors have a high threshold, 1+" to accommodate carpet. Can you set the door flush with the floor, yes, but it may be a lot of work. Setting the door on the subfloor as suggested, gets it 3/4" down with hardwood floors.

Why are you trying to get rid of the threshold?
Thresholds give definition between rooms and help with bridging the transition between flooring

OK.
I'm blonde and a little confused at this moment.
Are we talking interior or exterior door?
