optimal computer system

Hello, I have a basic question. If I were to buy a new computer now, what would be the optimal setup for eCabinet software? I have previously had trouble in the shop drawing and presentation areas and the techs could not figure it out and came to the conclusion that it was probably my graphics card....

Anyone, I too have had trouble with fonts in Line Drawing Editor. In my case, all the dimensions numbers are 28 point text. This might be a fine size for a title, but its much too large for dimensions on my drawings. I am unable to change this text size. I can go to the box and change the number, bu...

Kerry, When I first read your post on \"simply grabbing the grip on the bar and dragging it to where you want it\", I felt rather stupid. I mean, duh! But as it turned out, I did not have grips and I couldn't grab them. I tried minimizing and making sure my whole window was visible on the ...

Custom Desktop question

I was reading the forum a couple of weeks ago and read something about customizing the windows desktop so that all the toolbars and taskbars were all vertical, that is, running up the side of the screen instead of across the top. When I tried to find it again, I came up empty. I tried searching and ...

Thanks Mark,
The drawing looks great.
Thanks Kerry, I checked out the thread and will try to emulate the Title Block. That is very helpful.

Shop Drawings

Thanks Mike, I am talking about residential. What I was after was really more of the formating aspect. What it looks like on a page and if there are accepted norms for doing it. I was putting the info on the page and wondering if I was doing it like everyone else or if mine looked too busy or confus...

Shop Drawings

Hey Guys, I am just learning the line drawing editor and I realized that I dont know how professional shop drawings are laid out. Is there someone out there that could post a couple \"typical\" shop drawings that I could emulate? I would very much appreciate it. I need to know what kinds o...

Web Frame Questions

Does anyone know how to incorporate web frames into a cabinet? I tried the stretcher editor and it won't seem to do what I am looking for. First, I guess I should define what I think a web frame is. I think of a web frame as 4 members, say 3 inches wide, fastened together on the flat plane to make w...

board stock questions

Thank guys for all the replies. It seems that the software is unable to do what I want it to do, at least at this time. I dont, however, understand why it shouldnt be able to. When it comes to gluing up panels in-house, why do you have specify the width of board in the first place? Why not have the ...

Board Stock Questions

I was wondering if anyone knows how to use board stock for adjustable shelves? When I dry to pick my material, I only have a choice of sheet stock and I can't get to the board stock list. Is there a trick? Also, when you do 5 pc doors in-house, the program asks you what kind of stock you will use fo...
