Mario,

When you are in the Cabinet Editor, you'll see a tab for Display Objects. Within that there will be a folder for "Wood Components" and then Adams Wood Products and Hafele. You'll find a variety of legs in Adams Wood Products. Select one. It will be placed at the position of the Target.

If you research the Help documents you should be able to find how to move objects with features like Align Items and Move Increment. Once you have the part(s) where you want them, then you'll need to research how to Associate the object to the cabinet or you'll need to save the cabinet as an Assembly.

The procedures for doing this are available in our subscription-based online video training program and also "The Nearly Complete Guide to eCabinet Systems".

I do not see any such folder. My directory is set to import. Where should I look to find those products?

Misdirected. Go to "Hardware Objects". Then Wood Components.

Should not be a problem. Both objects must be selected. Single-click on the turning. Double-click on the cabinet. Right-click and choose the option "to associate to cabinet" from the Associations options.

Dennis, When I click on hardware objects all I get is a file called pulls. Nothing about a wood component.

Go to our website, www.ecabinetsystems.com. Find the Software Installs and Updates page. Towards the bottom of the page is Wood Components to download and install.
