Hi Conor,


In QuickDesign libraries, all our drawers are renamed to follow the length of the runners.

(in QD7.1 400 to 600, and since QD7.3 270 to 650mm)

For rename going to menu Tools > Preferences…

after edit all new cabinet used this preferences, and for cabinet previously created you need to update this preferencse by going in menu 

Modify > Replace panel types


For grain direction and available with PolyBoard 7 you recently update you can now manage the défaut grain direction with Materials styles Sub-method,

in the reference axis tab

Select your current sub-methods then add a constraint on the doors and drawer fronts, “Along Cabinet Height”

All the best, Alexandre

Hi from Dublin.

In drawer methods is there a way to rename Drawer 1 Drawer 2 etc.

I’d like to call them the a name that relates to the size of the runner.


It seems by default if my drawer façade has grain it is vertical.

I know how to change the grain direction manually but can I change the default as 99% of our drawers have the grain running from left to right.


Regards and thanks,
