They don't have a referece in the Custom Edit Area.
I am thinking about something simple like changing a tall cabinet from 2 tall doors to 4 doors and adding the fixed sh.

modifying cabinet styles

Post by John Whitling » Mon Jan 10, 2005 9:52 am

Hi
Go to the style tables tab, click the button for cabinet styles and then perform any edits that you want. If your cabinet contains any drawers (false or real), make sure you enter the number of drawer stacks. A typical 3 drawer base would have 1 stack whereas a 2 door 2 drawer base would have 2 stacks.

To learn more watch the tutorial on editing cabinet styles. Thanks for writing!

I went to the Styles sheet to modify.
I was able to modify an existing cabinet, but when I tried to insert a row (inside the red box) to setup a new item it said that the field was protected and wouldn't insert it.
What am I doing wrong.
I tried in both the sample I created and the actual database.
Both with the same results.

to insert a new row you must unprotect the styles worksheet. Go to "Format|Sheet|Protection" and unselect the "enable cell locking". I just ran our tutorials on the subject and this wasn't mentioned. sorry about that :(

We'll be incorporating that into the movies in the future. If you want you can leave the styles sheet unprotected but do not edit the headings.
