I would like to learn more about ways to customize cabinets. Do you have any suggestions?
Customizing your kitchen in Chief Architect is easy using the custom countertop, end panels, symbols, and filler options.
If you initially experience difficulty in selecting the Custom Countertop and are instead selecting an individual Base Cabinet, select Build> Cabinet> Custom Countertop to activate the tool and then click to select the Custom Countertop's front edge.
You can place cabinet components such as doors, drawers, end panels, cook tops and sinks independently in your plan from the Library Browser which allows for even more freedom of movement.
Also, If you know ahead of time that your cabinets will need panels you can set this up in the Cabinet Defaults.
If you would prefer to use the Filler tools manually, and not have fillers automatically created, select Edit> Default Settings> Cabinets> General Cabinet> Edit and uncheck the box next to Create Automatic Fillers.
Note that this setting is dynamic, which means that changing it will affect cabinets already present in your plan.
