I'll new to Chief and have learned that this form might be one of the best resources I have ever used. I am trying to streamline my design process and to do that I would love to be able to change cabinet ends to finished or paneled faster and easier. I tried to make a SP to do this, but I couldn't figure it out. I also thought that there might be a way to do this with macros is a SP, but I know even less about macros than I do Chief.
Any help is appreciated, and if it's not possible that's fine I'll know not to spend more time on this.
I am new to Chief but so far I love it. Far better than my previous software. So far, the only problem that I have had is using macros to create a custom label for cabinets.
All I am trying to do is get chief's labels to match my manufacture nomenclature. I know I could manually change it on every cabinet, but that seems like to much work and honestly a waste of time. So could someone give me some help. Either a bit of a guide on custom macros and some recourses and documentation (which I, for the life of myself, can't find), or maybe a working-ish or example macro.
Some examples:(chief nomenclature, needed nomenclature)
Thanks in advance for the help! And if I didn't give enough information or if there is a better way to go about this, please let me know.
Oh, almost forgot. I am running Interiors x14.
I am trying to align the orientation of the materials on a base cabinet with both drawers and doors. When I use the material painter to apply "Teak" for example, to a standard vanity cabinet, the drawers and the doors are always 90 degrees off. If I rotate thee texture of the cabinet 90 degrees, they both rotate. I need to rotate the doors or the cabinets separately. I want both the drawers and doors to have the texture apply in the same vertical or horizontal orientation.
When you place a cabinet as a blind corner, CA automatically adjusts the filler and door size for the exposed portion of the cabinet.
The filler is 2" wide... we typically work with 3" fillers to make sure there is clearance on the adjoining cabinet hardware.
How can this default be changed?, as having to add a vertical blank each time is getting old.
Thank you for any suggestions.
