I'm new to Chief, I'm using X-8


What is the quickest way to change the color of all the kitchen cabinets.


I just drew a kitchen with a light oak finish. I want to save that view and produce

another view with a darker oak stain. Is there a way to do this all at one time, or

do I have to do this one cabinet at a time?

Go to default settings.  Under cabinets click on materials and set it to the darker oak.  The other cabinets will update if they were placed as default cabinets.  In many cases it is faster to use the material painter.  If you want both versions, you should save it as two separate plans.

...if using the Material Painter you'll probably want to do so in either Room or Plan mode.

      I'm new to CA and am trying to figure out why my kitchen cabinet doors seem to display the wrong sizes.
      In the default cabinet settings under "box construction" I have framless full overlay 1/16" reveal cabinet, one would expect that [as an example] a wall door height and width of a wall cabinet 15"W x 30"H should be 14 7/8"W x 29 7/8"H (15x30 minus 1/16" on all sides). Instead under "Front/Sides/Back" it shows 28.5"W x 13.5"W indicating that the reveals are 0.75"!!! This makes it difficult to calculate the doors when making specific/custom modifications.
      What am I missing?

      Trying to place draws in behind the pantry door.
      Actually, wire baskets draws.
      I know the cabinets tool have a few improvements, cannot find anywhere. 
      I have looked in Rev-A-Shelf.
