Ive been designing and modeling a few pieces of furniture and builtins here in chief and for some reason I'm having issues with countertop overhangs when a cabinet is butted to another cabinet that is a different depth. Ive attached a photo, but ive never ran into this issue in x9. I have countertops set in my defaults to be the same all the way around, but for some reason when a cabinet is placed adjacent to another, the cabinet with the larger depth will not carry the correct overhang to its adjacent cabinet.

I've not seen that.

 

Could you upload the plan?

I believe cabinets and their automatically produced countertops have always done that.  I also think you're fighting this particular battle for no really good reason.  If I were you I would remove that countertop edge molding profile from the cabinets, group select the cabinets, click Generate Custom Countertop, resize the top as needed, and then add the molding to your countertop.

This was an Issue a few years ago but I think it has been fixed now..... since we can adjust overhangs on all edges now , and the auto countertop is smarter now in these situations , check the STD cabinets in the attached plan... they seem okay to me after a few adjustments.... I saved a number of cameras and sections....

 

And in this case it was not necessary to do a Custom Top either as your cabinet has applied moldings , so on the middle cabinet I just added a 1" piece behind the the Edge molding to push it out, seems to have worked....

      I have an octagonal shaped room (silo, 3 stories tall) and I need to build a stair case along the outer wall, following the shape of the octagon, with winders in the corners. What is the best way to go about doing this? I can't seem to figure out how to get the angles correct, the railings to work, get it to create winders on the corners, or get it tight to the wall.

      Hello, I need help creating this specific balaced stair in chief architect premier x12. 
      The only thing i could think of was to manually create every step from slabs. I still need to corect some steps from plan view but at least the height and length are good - now how can i add the rails on the inside and outside walls?
       
      Or maybe is wrongfully thought from the start; what is the simplest, smartest way to create this type of stairs?
