glass Doors how to

How can you make, a one piece, mdf or slab door, open for glass? short of going into the part editor and drawing each door.
After 13 years of owning my machine, I am finally doing my first set of Kitchen Cabinets.

Use a cabinet part (the back is convenient), make your part editor cuts in it - two rectangles, one inside the other - cut the inner rectangle thru, and the outer rectangle 1/4" deep or so. Then take it to the constraint manager and constrain it to the dimensions you need. Save it, and use it as a seed.

If you go into the door editor, then to the GENERAL tab, there is a check box to have a frame only, another to add glass and an area to add mullions.

Thanks Leo, But it looks like that only applies if you are using Conestoga Doors
