Base cabinet with appliance

Recommended Posts

I have a base cabinet with a single oven appliance in it - the auto cabinet label will not display on the floor plan nor will the cabinet appear in the cabinet schedule(include in schedule is checked). If I remove the appliance the label appears on the floor plan and in the cabinet schedule. I would like the label to appear on the floor plan and in the schedule. What am I doing wrong?

Appliances are not programmed to show in a cabinet schedule, only cabinets show in cabinet schedules.

Appliances show in the "Appliance Schedule".  If the Appliance doesn't take all the Cabinet space (Oven in a Tall Cabinet for example) then you will have a Cabinet in the Cabinet Schedule and an Appliance in the Appliance Schedule.  OTOH, if the Appliance fills the entire space then the Cabinet essentially doesn't exist and you will only have the Appliance.

That sounds like a bug to me.  Even if there's just a toe-kick and a separation top and bottom it should be classified as a cabinet.  Chief shouldn't require anything else to have it show up in the Cabinet Schedule and have a Label.

Yeah it's a bug IMO, I can duplicate it.

Alternate work around is to block it, include in schedule, change to automatic label, be sure cabinet schedule includes "other" and suppress the label of the cabinet proper. Advantage is the cabinet itself is correct.

Since I always have blocks in my plan to get stuff into the schedule anyway it's not a big deal. Add to your library for future use.

After I logged off (missus was chasing me). I realized why I've never run into this. I never order a cabinet for this, instead I order a subbase and a frame OR spec site built subbase and other solid stock. Either makes installers much happier than messing with a cabinet (that most don't make properly)

      Hello everybody. I have recently made the jump from the Home Designer Pro series to Premier X12. I have a client that wants the windows to be labeled with letters instead of numbers. I have not seen a way to change that but am I missing something?

      Good afternoon,
      I am trying to design a kitchen but am having issues with both lower and upper cabinets that are convex.  I understand using the different door styles for the front, but how do I make the back of the cabinets fit?

      Has anyone found how to re-name their Camera Callout Labels in X12? For example, my cameras are set up with a Callout Label of "C1, C2, C3..." etc etc. This is by way of some default setting that I cannot seem to find. Each new camera automatically labels and numbers itself in succession as noted above. However, I have decided I'd like name all of my future Full Cameras as "P1, P2, P3... " in a new plan. 
      Except for opening each individual camera to change the Callout Label, I cannot find a setting to change this default to start with a "P" and automatically number itself from there! It seems to be missing from the Full Camera Defaults page.. You CAN set a default for "Text Below Line" but not for the Callout Label itself for cameras?

      I am trying to show a recessed wall cabinet bottom for inserting a light strip. 
      I need to be able to show the bottom of the cabinet recessed up by 1 1/2" with the sides still down. The doors should cover the recess also.
