Is there a way?

Postby Donald Thomson » Wed, Apr 22 2015, 1:44PM

To define mortise and tenon joinery construction parameters globally (applies to all parts)? It is time consuming to have to go to each part individually and make these settings.

Thanks!

Don,

You can set face frame construction and its Mortise/Tenon Setting directly from the Global Settings tab in construction settings. Is this what you asking for? FYI: Mortise/Tenon FF construction will only turn on for board stock face frame material (if the ff material is set to sheet stock, you cannot use M/T const.).

What I'm am wondering is can I set the blind tenon construction parameters for top, sides, deck, stretchers, shelves, partitions. Like when you go into cabinet editor, bring up construction settings and change Construction Parameters. In there you can set dado depth, depth clearance, fit clearance, BlindDado tenon settings, placement, etc. at a global level for a cabinet or for all the editors to draw from (cabinet, drawer, stretcher, shelf, etc.)?

Can I do this a global setting for the program? Like in Settings/Preferences dialog?

I know I can change the settings fro faceframe construction.

I'd like to take this principle a step higher. Is it possible to change the construction settings for multiple library cabs at one time? I've looked into the Adjustable Features/Global Item Modification area, but it doesn't allow me to do things like change adjustable shelf setback for an entire folder of cabs. This would be super-handy.
