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 am looking to do a square overhang but the program is flattening out the eave portion of the overhang. What factor is controlling this?

      I am wondering if there is a simple way of aligning the custom tile in a custom backplash? In the attached drawing I have created two custom tiles for this hypothetical shower. The big tile is 24x24 and I would like to have it go 5' up on the wall and then have a 12" deco strip of 2x2 tile and then more of the larger tile above that to the ceiling. Problem is I want a full tile on the top of the 5' high lower part, (the half cut would be on the bottom), and then start with a full tile on top of the deco strip. And my deco strip is 2x2 tile, I made it as a 12x12 square of 2x2 tile and yet it doesn't line up as full tile on the top and bottom edges...
