Thanks for using the forum! As for hinges on tall doors .. in the cabinet specs there is a dimensions tab. On that tab you can set the height that you want the system to add an additional 3rd and 4th hinge. The dimension is for the door height, meaning that the system subtracts the toe base height and drawer fronts to arrive at door heights.

One other thing playing into this equation is that the hinge cost is for an ENTIRE set of hinges, including fixing plates and fasteners. The hinge cost is not "per hinge" .. it's "per pair". Does this jive with the results you are getting?

As for the second part of your question .. what additional items are you trying to add? You've looked at the custom tab in the spec and that's not enough? Most customers don't even use that tab because they don't need it.
