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)

      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.

      I'm sure this is simple, but I can't figure it out.  I'm new to Chief Architect...
       
      How do I get the callout labels to be smaller, like 1/2 the size they are showing on the image I have attached?  I am referring to the appliance and cabinet callouts.  I can't figure out where those text sizes are controlled. 
       
      I appreciate all the help!

      I want to show a window schedule for each elevation only showing the windows on that elevation, what is the best way to do this?
      This way i can show the sq footage of windows on that wall exposure and have it totaled in the schedule for just that wall.

      There must be a way to alter or control the vertical spacing of schedules. I've included the exterior elevation view of windows in my schedule, and there's a lot of wasted space between each row.
      Does anyone know if that can be adjusted?
