Placement of Cabinets Next to Each Other Improved
Version 12 has improved the program's ability to automatically place one cabinet next to another. When you draw a cabinet along a wall, the back of the cabinet will snap the edge of the wall. Also, a cabinet drawn next to an existing cabinet will automatically snap the new cabinet next to the existing cabinet and bind them together to form a continuous cabinet run. Cabinets can also be bound together back to back as in the case of an island. The placement of cabinets next to each other has improved compared to previous versions to avoid cabinet binding together when not desired. An example of this is two cabinets on opposite sides of a wall. Previous version may have snapped the cabinets together back to back through the wall as the distance between each cabinet was within their snap tolerance. Version 12 now recognizing the wall between the two cabinet runs and no longer snaps them together.

  2. Select Edit > Reverse.
  3. Form an expanding box that fully encompasses the entire floor plan layout, including the cabinets.
