I would like to define the default materials for my ­corner boards and quoins. How is this accomplished?


In Chief Architect, the default materials for corner boards can be quickly and easily specified in the Material Defaults dialog.

To set the default materials for corner boards and quoins

  1. Select Edit> Default Settings  to display this dialog.

  2. Expand the list for Corner Trim

  3. Highlight Corner Boards, then click on the Edit button to display the Corner Board Defaults dialog.

  4. Select the Materials panel, and click on Wall Corner Board.

  5. If you already have the material in your plan that you want to use for your Corner Boards, select Plan Material.

    Otherwise, select the Library Material button to display the Select Library Object dialog, navigate to the appropriate material to select it, and click OK.


  6. Click OK to apply this change. Now any corner boards that you apply to your plan will use this material, and you can repeat this same process for Quoins.
