When you get the dialog box for installing drawers, enter 3 in the quantity box at the top. Change the inset to the thickness of the drawer fronts and you are good to go.

Unless you have mid stiles over the partitions you will have to manually add each drawer via the Load Item dialog (the same place you load a cabinet but click the Doors/Drawers radio button on the dialog).

You will need to know the size of each door before loading it and you will have to manually place them into the correct location. This isn't so bad with full overlay or full inset doors but it can be a little trying with partial overlay doors.

Don't forget to associate the doors with the cabinet before you save or they will magically disappear :lol: To do this just double-click the cabinet to select it then click a door to select it, right-click and choose \"Associations - Associate to cabinet\" from the context menu.
